Windows 7: BSOD Win 7 every start up

BSOD Win 7 every start up

I have had my current hard drive/os install for 5(upgraded to SSD at that time) or so months with no issues. Tuesday night I surfed on the computer briefly before going to bed and everything seemed fine. I woke up Wednesday morning to a windows repair attempt. I restarted and it immediately would restart. I disabled auto restart and it came up with the 7b bsod.

I have attempted numberous(15+) windows 7 system repairs via the installation disc, system restore(which for some reason only shows two restore points, one of which happened Tuesday night after I went to bed from a system update), chkdsk repair, sfc repair, malwarebytes scan via hooking the hard drive up to another computer with a usb/sata cable, switched out sata cables, removed all other drives and also ran super anti spyware via a hiren disc. I am still at a constant BSOD after all of that. I can not get into safe mode or normal mode.

I can see my files/folders when I hook it up to another computer or if i use a live cd.

The full BSOD is ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000, 0x000000000)

I haven't used the debugging software in the link before, but doesn't it require being ran from the troubled OS install? If so I can't do it, as I said in my post I can't get windows to boot on the drive at all. I can only see the files from a live disc or hooking it up with a usb to sata cable on another computer.

Try these steps:Check this directory:

Code:
C:\Windows\Minidump

I could not locate the minidump directory, even tried typing in the absolute path. I hooked the drive up to another computer externally and scanned with malwarebytes AGAIN and came back clean. I tried the cmd line options with bootrec.exe and fixmbr which didnt change anything. Went through a couple more rounds of repair my computer in the advanced options of startup with nothing.

I really don't want to reinstall windows because I don't have installation discs for at least one of the programs. Like I stated before all my files are view able with a live disc or hooked up externally so I don't see what seems to be causing the problem.

Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary: Make sure you have the latest firmware for SSD, and ensure all the SATA and Power cables are connected to the drive.

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

Code:
chkdsk C: /f /r

Partition - Mark as Active

Follow either method 2 or method 3 to make it sure that the 100 mb system reserved partition is marked as active, then run the bootrec commands, or Startup Repair for three separate times.

That error code (0x0000007B) points to an Inaccessible Boot Device. Are all your drives correctly picked up in the BIOS and, if you have any IDE (PATA) devices, are they jumpered correctly according to their location on the IDE cable? Try removing and replacing the data cable (if SATA, use latching types).

the SSD is in good shape, firmware is up to date. I have reseated the sata and power cables about 10 times. I have checked via live disc and can see the contents of the drive so i dont think it will be an issue with the sata port, etc.

I also have ran chkdsk about 10 different times with no luck.

One thing I did come across when going through the suggestions is the 100mb system reserve partition isnt on there. Not sure how that was removed/deleted since like I said it was working fine before bed and then I woke up to a non working boot. I did try cmd lines "bootsect /nt60 SYS" and "bootsect /nt60 ALL" but nothing yet. I am currently running startup repair a few more times since I just tried the nt60 ALL command to see if it it can help any.

Little more info...after the first startup repair after the c md lines, it is now showing "A recent driver installation or upgrade my be preventing the system from starting." I have tried system restore numerous times already fyi, unfortunately it only shows two restore points..not sure if I have the % for restores turned down(not that I remember) or if it has deleted others.
