Stop error...done countless hours of research still no solution Please Help Hi I am new to this site and have registered here to ask this question because after hours of googling and trying different things I have gotten nowhere with my problem. If anyone can help it would be clutch I have a lot of data that I'm trying to save. Here's what happened: I partitioned my hard drive with PartitionMagic 8.0 on my Dimension 8400 (XP Home Edition). PartitionMagic asked me to reboot to finalize the partition, I did so and right after the Bios screen I get the Stop Error: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x86979820, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000). I get this every time I try to boot, I cannot boot in safe mode or any of the options it presents. Same stop error in the same spot of the boot process every time. I ran ChkDsk, it gives me something like "the disk has an unrecoverable error" I cannot reinstall XP as it doesn't even recognize any of the partitions, or the hard drive for that matter. I used a program called SpinRite, took 12 hours to complete and I have no idea what it even did but it didn't fix the boot problem. If anyone can help in anyway I would appreciate it. Apologies for the lengthy post, but I just wanted to be thorough.
