Windows 7: BSOD startup loop 0x0000007B

BSOD startup loop 0x0000007B

Hello.
Getting a BSOD on startup.
Error code in full:
0x0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009497E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

My system setup:
Crucial m4 256GB is for Windows and a few programs/games
WD 1TB Black is for media, games and other stuff that I don't want loading like it's on speed.

Gigabyte x68x UD4-B3.
Corsair 1600MHz RAM, 16GB (4x4 GB). <- I did have some BSOD's, that seem to relate to memory, but this specific issue I think is not related to it.

Initially, when booting up, Windows wanted to do a startup repair, I didn't notice any BSOD before this when booting. I let it do it's thing. I come back and I see the BSOD and it reboots loop. So I tried a few of my own things. Chkdsk and the like, to no avail.
I did stop the infinite loops by forcing a disable on BSOD rebooting stuff.

I also tried Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery. No luck.
I did a Google. Some things point to my SSD. Others aren't exactly related.
Using Bootrec.exe /RebuildBCD it doesn't find any Windows installations. Yet on the C: drive, I see all of the usual Windows folders like System32 and such.

Startup repair also can't fix. Here's the full result (after it trying to do it twice and apparently "fixing" things.
Code:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Signature 01 and 02 are: 6.1.7600.16385
Signature 03: Unknown
Signature 04: 21200274
Signature 05 Autofailover
Signature 06: 4
Signature 07: Corrupt File
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Further information:
I installed Samsung KIES before shutting down. It installed drivers for my Galaxy S5 phone. My Computer wouldn't show the phone unless it was USB under Camera mode. I have an inkling this could be the culprit...

CHKDSK /f 0 bad files found on C.

Tried booting up in IDE - same BSOD.
Currently booting in AHCI like I have been ever since I got the SSD.

I also compressed the E drive. Which basically holds archive media and some emails. It's a partition of my D drive.

There were also no signs of my M4 failing. I was very particular when doing a fresh install of 7. Indexing is turned off. All caching is on D drive. Stuff like that.

I'm basically at a loss.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Can't exactly use either of those as I'm not able to get into Windows. It's a loop of BSOD - restart - BSOD - restart.

Thanks though.

Do you have a disk you can launch from? From the way it sounds, the MBR is corrupt.

I do.
I did a Bootrec /FIXMBR, FWIW. So it appears it's booting correctly.

What would you suggest when I boot from my W7 disk?

No.
Last known good configuration also results in the same BSOD.
