Windows 7: Ultimate x64 BSOD on Boot. Please help second time.

Ultimate x64 BSOD on Boot. Please help second time.

I've had the same computer and setup for 2 years now. I was playing a game and the power went out, something that has happened several times over the years with XP. When I rebooted, windows would not start. It would give me a stop error and hang at loading disk.sys in safe-mode. Windows recovery found no problems and would not repair anything. chkdsk passed and I was able to boot into a console and backup files on a spare drive.

It's been working fine for the last few weeks, but this morning I had an application hang. I was unable to end-task it, and eventually had to hard reboot.

Immediately after powering back-on, I got this message. BOOTMGR is corrupt, unable to boot windows. I tried windows recovery from the 7 cd-rom, no problems found. I disabled my other drives (spare backup, cd-rom) and windows attempted to boot, but then BSOD (like the first-time) Now each reboot gives me a stop error: c000021a

When I attempt to boot into safe-mode, just like before when it reaches ..\drivers\disk.sys, it hangs for a few minutes, then BSOD. (I have heard it's the driver after the last listed that's the problem?)

I have 3 HD's in a raid0 (same setup for two years) When this happened the first time I broke apart the raid, did complete chkdsks and low-level formats on each drive then reformed the raid before installing windows 7 again.

I'm not sure what to do at this point and my question is can anyone help? I would rather not have to go through console backup/format again.

Thanks!

Hi,

Can you boot with DVD drive for win 7 and go to dos command.

First type bootrec /fixboot press enter
Now type bootrec /fixmbr press enter

Try to reboot.

You can also try to access advanced system settings (right click my computer/properties/advanced system settings/Startup and recovery/ uncheck automatically restart.

Post message.

Yes I have tried to do startup repair. I will attempt to do the dos boot repair command as soon as this chkdsk /R is complete on the raid (almost done) I will post the results here.

Thanks for the quick responses

I added a message to my post.

Also, (if you have some training), you can read a .dmp file which gives you a pretty good idea what caused the crash.

Get the .dmp search for the file (usually in Windows/mem dump)

Install debugging tool for Win 7.

Both operation said completed successfully but did not help. I still get a stop error on boot-up, nothing has changed. Chkdsk also returned fine with no errors or results.

I can not boot into windows to use those tools
I did find about 5 .dmp files though.

Dave,

This means that you have been getting that mem dump more than once.

Did you try to get the screen message for the BSOD?

The stop error is code: c000021a
I was mistaken there is only one .dmp file.

If I attach the .dmp file, can someone look at it and help me out?

Minidumps won't be useful in this instance because the OS is bugchecking due to the termination of a critical user-mode process. In other words, either winlogon, CSRSS, or SMSS is crashing. Once the kernel notices, it deduces that there's no point living and throws itself off a cliff.

Minidump analysis would show nothing other than "a critical user-mode process has died for reasons which are not to be found in this abridged summary of the kernel-mode memory space". Not in those words of course
