The device is not burned as bootable, as it appears.

Better you try a bootable CD.

I don't have a spare blank cd to put it onto yet. Would it be ok if I just did the long generic scan in Windows for the meantime? What's the difference between scanning it in Windows and scanning it on a bootable disk?

I just did a Long Generic scan in Windows and it only took like 10 minutes to fail. Does this mean it's certain that my Hard Drive is failing and is the cause of all my BSOD's?

Now it can be confirmed. We always had this notion, but the test results are worthy to decide.

You need to replace the HDD.

Damn, that's the last thing in my computer I wanted to fail. Oh well, looks like I've got to get a new Hard Drive then.

Thanks very much for the assistance Arc. I really appreciate it. I wouldn't have found out the problem if it wasn't for you helping me.

I'll mark this thread as solved.

Oh, one more thing. If the Hard Drive is the problem how come it never crashes or has any problems in safe mode?

Your BSODs are always stop 0xF4 and ox7A, with the visible evidence of hard drive failure. Moreover the hard drive failed the tests too.

More than enough reason to blame the hard drive itself.

Why it does not crash in safe mode? The nature of BSOD is that they are random. It is difficult to say anything more in a remote assistance.
