Windows 7: BSOD STOP: 0X0000007E. Cant access Safe Mode

Windows 7 RTM X64
BSOD STOP: 0X0000007E. Cant access Safe Mode

Not sure what happened here.

I recently update the AHCI driver, which seemed to be fine.

Computer randomly blue screened a little while after.

STOP: 0X0000007E (0XFFFFFFFF80000003, 0XFFFFF88006A5F035, 0XFFFFF880037A0EC8, 0XFFFFF880037A0720)

Cant get into safe mode, startup repair did nothing either!

Fair bit of data that i need off the laptop too (Work stuff)

Any ideas?

Usual causes: Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint with no debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, Memory, 3rd party remote control,

It is very difficult to say anything about this particular issue, specially with the first parameter ....
The SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED bug check is a very common bug check. To interpret it, you must identify which exception was generated.
Common exception codes include the following:
  • 0x80000002: STATUS_DATATYPE_MISALIGNMENT indicates an unaligned data reference was encountered.
  • 0x80000003: STATUS_BREAKPOINT indicates a breakpoint or ASSERT was encountered when no kernel debugger was attached to the system.
  • 0xC0000005: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION indicates a memory access violation occurred.
Source: Bug Check 0x7E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (Windows Debuggers)

You may try boot into Advanced Boot Options > Debugging Mode

Does it make any changes?
