Windows fails to start up sometimes, error 6b

Hey guys, so i recently built a new computer and on occasion when i turn the computer on, i'll get a blue screen saying windows failed to load type thing, and then it restarts and i have to recover. now the weird thing is it doesn't happen all the time It more often than not doesn't work, but still there will be times where it works all day. I can't figure out why it works sometimes and not others. i don't do anything different, just facebook and Star Wars the Old Republic, so i don't think its a program which is causing the issue. Anyway here are my comp specs and the problem details

Intel i5 2500 3.30GHz
Gigabyte GTX560OC
C/Master Extreme 700W
WD 1TB Black

IF you are experiencing a BSOD we do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

All crashes were the same

STOP 0x0000006B: PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED


Usual causes: Hard drive, Cables, Missing boot files, Disabled driver


You say it boots sometimes and other times it doesn't?

Check your cable connections to the HDD and motherboard. Also, if you have a spare SATA cable laying around try swapping or if you don't, try a different port on the motherboard.

Please run this hard drive test and report back the results

Do you have the windows 7 dvd? If you do there is a hotfix released by microsoft that address this issue. It requires that you boot into the repair mode and go into command prompt and delete a file bootcat.cache which is located %SystemRoot%\system32\codeintegrity

Here is the link for the KB article - "Stop error code 0x0000006B PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED" error message during startup on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

You should give that a shot

I ran my computer in safe mode with command prompt and deleted the bootcat but i'm still getting the same issue. Then i tried through the wondows 7 dvd, but the cmd wouldn't let me delete the file. kept saying it couldn't follow the path or somthing like that
