HD driver error, BSOD boot and startup hangs on welcome screen. . .
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
Hello 7 forums,
My computer started experiencing crashes and errors a month ago and after receiving the BSOD my computer has failed to start entirely; safe mode hangs on crcdisk.sys, startup hangs on welcome screen and I get the BSOD while booting OS.
I want to erase and reformat my HD.
My question is; if I format my drive on my other PC (Windows Vista Home premium 32bit) or switch out HDs and use my Vista 32bit install disk. . . would I be able to wipe the drive and be able to use it? Or would the drivers be incompatible? Basically my only option is to buy a Vista Home Premium 64bit disk, but I'm considering the alternatives. . . help please?
