Windows 7: BSOD after upgrading laptop to windows 7 ultimate

BSOD after upgrading laptop to windows 7 ultimate

Ok, so i have a HP laptop model 6690ej.

i had on it the windows 7 RC, the 7100 model,
and when the version expiry date arrived i installed a windows 7 ultimate copy i got from a friend
i used this loophole i found online to edit a certain file, so that the upgrade will include the 7100 version even tough it's not supposed to. (what you do is copy the files of the installation onto your hard drive, then change this .reg file if i remember correctly, and voila - upgrade works..)
However, ever since the upgrade, every time windows starts, after a few minutes (it varies) , i get BSOD
The error is 7F (which to my knowledge means software right ?)
I don't know what to do, i have to at least find a way to backup my files and i can't because of the bsod and when i try hooking up my ipod in safe mode it won't let me use it (because it's safe mode)

if anyone has a way to fix this, or for me to use the ipod to backup all my pictures and documents from the last 2 years, i'd appreciate it a lot!

i'm pretty much desperate here..

Thanks,
Michael, Israel.

i just read the "[1 - Novice] How to ask for help with a BSOD problem" article
even before seeing your amazingly fast response (thanks for that :P)
i can't get to it as the bsod appears every time before i can do anything, ill try safe mode with networking tough..

one more thing, most of the times windows takes a lot of time starting after i pass the password screen, and its the 32-bit i upgraded to.

will update soon.
