BSOD after creating dual boot partition space. Error 0x00000034

Hello.
I went to my Windows 10 after shrinking windows 7's hard drive to fit both OS in and dual boot, but once I installed Windows 10 it worked fine. A bit slow.. but whatever. Turned off my pc and tried going to 7 again and now I'm getting a Cache_Manager BSOD. I can't go to 7 or 10 anymore. Tried using my usb stick to boot 10's ISO and potentially fix it that way but the error popped up again. Cannot enter safe mode either because of this. I looked around online and it says my RAM may be the cause? But my computer worked perfectly before I decided to go do this. 8gb ram by the way. The only thing I can think of is that whenever I shrunk my volume I had 13gb on it and the recommended size is 25 for windows 10. Another thing I tried is changing to IDE in my sata config in the BIOS and that seemed to let my computer last a few more seconds before getting the error again. I'm posting this here because windows 7 is my main OS and I don't even care about using 10 anymore I just wanna use 7. I would post a dump of some sort but I'm not 100% sure how to do that in my computer's current state, so apologies for that. Any ideas?

Hi lostSoul,

Whats the size of your HDD/SSD
You will need at least 50GB to dual boot.

Have a look at this W10 forum post
BSOD on Boot 0xc0000034 Solved - Windows 10 Forums


What do you actually want to do
run W7, W10 or both
depending on what you want will dictate how we proceed


As you have allready installed you shoud have a valid licence to run it in the future

My SSD is 120gb, currently what I want to do is just run windows 7 now and revert everything back to normal. I would like to try that other post's steps but again when I used my windows 10 iso to boot and install windows 10, I got the cache manager problem again and couldn't proceed with getting anywhere near a cmd prompt. Startup repair also gives the error so even that will not work for me sadly, I'm really not sure what I can do to get some sort of repair option without it giving errors.

If you haven't, reset the BIOS settings to the default.

You'll need the installation media that you should've gotten from the place where you purchased or from the manufacturer for the laptop to install Windows and activate properly.

Apologies for the late reply. I have the correct Windows 7 ISO which is what came with my computer in the first place, x64 home premium. When booting from USB, it says loading files like normal but then the windows boot up sequence appears and before it could finish, I get the Cache Manager error again. The BSOD itself tells me to go to safe mode but even that gives this error too.
Edit: I've reset my BIOS already. What I've just now tried is following that guide of the 10Forums posted above using and booting from a windows 7 repair disc I created from my other desktop (exact same os and everything, just to clarify) and then another Cache manager bsod whenever It tried loading.

Did you reset the BIOS before booting from any media?

I did, still no fix. Changing my SATA mode didn't change anything either.

I'm not 100% sure honestly. It's a generic version of a Novatech/Asus laptop, this laptop says Model A15YA. It uses an Aptio Setup Utility by 2011 American Megatrends Version 2.13.1216 BIOS if that helps at all.
