Windows 7: BSOD at startup, error 0x000000ED

BSOD at startup, error 0x000000ED

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit pre-installed.
When I try to startup, it gets past the Windows logo then goes to the BSOD, error 0x000000ED.

I've tried booting in the Last Known Good Configuration, and Safe Mode.
The 'Repair Your Computer' option doesn't do anything either.

I have backup disks made from the Dell Backup and Recovery Manager and tried using it.
It came up with this:

"Windows has failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings and click next.
3. Click repair your computer.

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
Status: 0xc00000011
info: the selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt."

I've also tried using my second backup. It loaded successfully into a normal looking screen, but no window popped up with options to choose from.

Please help, I need it fixed ASAP!
Thank you!

Use Advanced Boot Options to select Repair Your Computer and get to the System Recovery Options. Then select the command prompt. Do the following:
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:
.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
"Windows has checked the file system and found no problems"
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
"Windows has made corrections to the file system"
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.

Hi, thanks for the reply -
I went tried the "Repair Your Computer" option in the Advanced Boot Options to get to the System Recovery Options. It would show it was loading the files, but then it would switch to the Windows Error Recovery, with the options:

Launch Startup Repair (recommended)
Start Windows Normally

I tried the startup repair option, and it acted the same way as the Repair Your Computer option.
Start Windows Normally just makes me go back to the BSoD.

You will probably need to use a repair disc to get into the recovery options then. Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc — MAXIMUMpcguides – Windows 7 tips, tricks, help, and how-to guides

I only have access to a different Netbook (Windows 64bit also) with no CD drive available, and I cannot get my hands on an external one. Is it possible to make one with a USB?

Also, I have another laptop (from work) with a CD drive available, but it runs on Windows XP. Is it possible to create one with that? Or maybe use it's CD drive for the Netbook?

Thanks.

You can make a USB version. Get Gentoo Linux Bootable USB Maker for Kaspersky (I know it says Kaspersky, but it is actually a Gentoo bootable USB creator for ISO files). You unzip Gentoo, put the ISO file into the Gentoo folder, and run fixgt2.bat to create a bootable USB. You will have to find an ISO of the repair disc.

I have successfully created a USB version or the repair disk.
Now, how can I use it?

You need to make sure in your BIOS that you have USB boot devices enabled. Most of the time, the BIOS has this option, especially in newer computers. Just make sure the boot order includes such devices.

I tried booting the USB. However, it came up with a screen showing:

"SYSLINUX 3.51 2007-06-10 EBIOS Copyright (C) 1994-2007 H. Peter Anvin
Could not find kernel image: linux
boot: _ "

From there I could type anything beside the "boot: ".
What seems to be the problem?

It's trying to find a linux based bootable USB and yours is Windows based. I just learned something new. See if Boot Windows 7 System Repair Disc from USB Using Grub4Dos works better.
