That was back in the days of Win9x (and I might be getting confused anyhow - it's been years since I looked in a Win9x registry!)

Cosmitz has a test bed with this exact "Bad Patch" boot failure he's willing to offer for testing fix surgeries from WinRe.

Would you want to guide him Noel (or anyone else with experience at this) to try deleting the last month's-worth of Updates and drivers?

I'm likely to be only periodically available over the next few days - whereabouts is he? (think time-differences)

Post #9 above.

He's also here with the precipitating boot failure: 0x7b - 0xC34 - Win7 Pro 32bit
