Windows 7: Blue Screen (BSOD) After System Image Restore - *** STOP 0x000000F4...

Blue Screen (BSOD) After System Image Restore - *** STOP 0x000000F4...

I backed up my old system before sending it in for repairs. They replaced the HDD and sent me back the refurbished PC. So I started to restore my old system to the same computer. I put in the repair disc I just made on the new OS they put on the new HDD (Home Premium). I went to system image restore, and it recognized the system image etc. on my external HDD. I checked to format & repartition, etc. so it set about restoring the system, it took about 3 or 4 hours for 315 or so GB. (my external HDD is 320GB, but the computer HDD is 640GB)

When it was done it restarted and ran CHKDSK (I wouldn't skip it even if I pressed a button). It fixed a few things and restarted. Then it said "Starting Windows" or whatever, and the BSOD. It says:

*** STOP 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA800701A060,0xFFFFFA800701A340, 0xFFFFFA80003393460)


I've tried all of the "Safe Mode" options and they all result in the BSOD.

I have gotten the Minidump file from a Ubuntu Live CD. Here it is:

Please help, thank you!

Hi Mike,

Was the computer running fine before you restored the image?
And can I just ask...is the new Hard drive a SSD?

You could also try these:
Run memtest.
Check Windows system event logs and see if a lot of NTFS errors are accessing your drive.
Make sure drivers are uptodate and no problems in Device manager. ( Ive seen this issue caused by bad display drivers and/or by conflicting display drivers)
Check all drive cables are seated correctly or try known working cables to be safe
Try running minus 1 DIMM, then minus the other one.
Try disabling Graphics card in Device manager and reboot.
Try PSU swap.
Try a different hard drive


Usually this error is either a disk problem or a memory problem or a power problem or software/driver related.

Saying that I once had the same error on a computer and believe it or not I fixed it by removing the CMOS battery for 15 mins and rebooting the machine (you will have to change back any Bios settings you had previously as this will restore defaults)


Hope this helps, let me know any outcome, good luck.
Cheers

Dave

Yes, it was working fine before the image restore besides a cooling system problem. This is a laptop btw. I had Windows working fine on it before I formatted it in order to do a system image restore. Which leads one to believe it is a problem with the system image. All my files got restored, as I was able to retrieve them with a Ubuntu Live CD. But I am afraid of losing all of my settings (registry), bookmarks, etc. which is not as easy to just backup. It is not a SSD.

I can't access Windows at all. Can I do any of your steps via cmd or a Ubuntu Live CD?

Thanks so much.

Based on the BSOD there are two drivers that has caused this BSOD....

1. avfwim.sys ( which is a AVIRA Antivirus NDIS packet driver) caused and IRP fault twice

2. MijXfilt.sys (Motionjoy driver... used by Xbox) which caused a driver violation.

Now you would need to disable these 2 in order to boot... If you are using the Ubuntu Live CD ... then go the Windows\System32\drivers... look for these two drivers and rename it to avfwin.sys_old and MijCfilt.sys_old. This is make sure that these drivers are not loaded why windows boots...

Once this is done.. When you reboot and reach the desktop... your AVIRA antivirus ... as well as your Xbox driver will not work.

For Antivirus ... remove AVIRA and install Microsoft Security Essential

Then Reinstall the Xbox driver.
