Windows XP dual boot with Windows 7rc
Nightmares with 0x0000007b Error


nooby on this forum and I'm very desperate for help. :cry:

I have installed Windows 7 dual boot with Windows XP w xp is first install.
Every think worked smoothly until a few Trojan Viruses got hold of my PC, now the viruses are gone And I'm left with a faulty boot, I have 3 sata hdd
one for Windows XP partitioned for data one for Windows 7 and the other for Games, I'm running W XP professional and W 7rc Ultimate.

Now to the problem!
I was able to repair W 7 boot by using EasyBCD installed in W 7 by following instructions found on this forum but booting back to Windows XP I get this

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7c7E63C, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)".

The only way I can access Windows XP is to pull the data and power from the other 2 HDD then it boot happily to XP. :confused:
