Updating computer to SP1 x64, causes a BSoD on startup
When it restarts to complete installation, it gets to the windows loading screen, and instantly BSoDs every time.
As it's flashing and is there for less than a second, I can't even make out what error message it is.
And to make things worse, it's not creating a dump file. The check is there to make one, but there's no file created.
Safe mode results in the same error, so my only option is to do the recovery option and restore before installing the SP.
I've attached the Seven Forums archive, contains everything except a dump file.
The SSD is an OCZ Vertex 4 256GB.
Ok, so I'm not sure what the hell happened, but it attempted to install SP1 again, and this time it somehow wiped the boot drive. I don't even know how that's possible, but it completely buggered my install as it wouldn't repair (I've tried all the normal bootsec and even creating it manually).
So I started clean.
Updated the firmware on my SSD.
Made sure all hardware drivers are up to date.
Complete new reinstall.
Windows gets to SP1.... and it's still blue screening.
Still not creating the memdump, but I do know the STOP code is 0x0000007B. Which, IIRC, is to do w/ not being able to load the SSD.
It tried to do a System Restore, and failed - in the extra info, it said Bad Driver. However, after this, it booted fine. Still not on SP1 though.
I'm honestly not sure what to do now, I know the driver's fine - it's working fine *before* SP1, it works fine in a Linux LiveCD, the BIOS recognises it fine, the ONLY issue I have is as soon as it installs SP1.
Could anyone even give me any advice on where I should START? I'm beyond frustrated now, nothing's working, Microsoft's support is bullshit and hasn't solved anything, and I haven't been able to update my laptop in a week.
This is a fresh OS install within the last ~3 hours, all I've done is installed the drivers, authenticated, and gone to install SP1. Nothing is corrupt, nothing's wrong with the hardware - the only changing factor is the SP.
I've re-ran the Seven Forums tool getting all information, and updated the attached file.
