After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

Normally I wouldn't post like this, but I'm ready to snap.  I lost the partition Dell put on my hard drives, so everything was lost. I redid the partition reinstalled windows, put Alien Respawn back on the system (Just putting the USB and magic happening was <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU>) originally when Alien Respawn did the reboot, instead of Alien Respawn I got Windows System Restore instead. Dells best people hopped on my computer, said it was fixed, only resulting in a program crash every-time.  I refuse to do the 20min song and dance it takes to get anyone on the phone anymore. I wasted an entire day doing that. (I would add night, but 24hr service only counts if your spending money, not already spent it.) Eventually I figured the copy I downloaded "From a Dell site" was corrupt, and I found another copy elsewhere. I managed to get everything restored only to get the Blue Screen of Death "stop:0x0000007B" error every Boot-up. I can't even get safe mode, or a Dos prompt.  Thinking it might have been a fluke I re-did the entire process again, leading to the same result. I've tried everything I can think of. I sent a help request email days ago and got no response. I'm loosing business because I can't access my files. I've even considered killing my warranty and pulling the drives to get the information off them using my desk-top. Windows can fix it. I've been sitting here for three days looking up and trying every fix I can find and use in my current situation> Hell I even paid extra for my Alien Respawn service so something like this wouldn't happen and it got to things, Jack and <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU>  If anyone out there has an idea I'd love to hear it.  Thanks for at least reading my ramblings.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro

Alienware M17x R4 laptop

2x 500G hard drives partitioned into a 1Tb single drive

If you need anymore information, just ask and I'll give it to you.

Hi cleevondeath,

Sorry for the inconvenience. The blue screen STOP 0x0000007B errors are caused by device driver issues (especially those related to hard drive and other storage controllers), viruses, data corruption, and sometimes even hardware failures. Request you to use the below link and run diagnostics:

Re: After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

I tried them all, I made sure I took every step Dell had listed , that's why I sent an email asking what I should do next?

And the Run the 32 Bit Alienware Diagnostics does not load off my disk, i press "1" and nothing happens. I've even let it sit for 10min once with the hope that there was a delay, only there wasn't.  Any more ideas?

Re: After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

I just noticed that Alien Respawn re-partitioned my drives completely wrong all my files are designated under the "E" slot and the "C" drive is holding a Boot folder and a System Volume Information folder. Any way that I could get Alien Respawn to put my files back on without phucking with my partition first?

Hi cleevondeath,

I will be glad to help you. Request you to provide the error code that appeared after the tests completed.

You may try doing a clean Operating system re-installation and then you can re-partition the computer.

This should help.

Re: After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

Error code does not name a driver, nor a program full code is (and I'm glad I have this written down.)

stop:0x0000007B(0xFFFFF880009A97E8,0xFFFFFFFFC0000034,0x0000000000000000,0x0000000000000000)

The results from other tests were either unknown, or nothings wrong. Or in the case of sfc/scannow, it was and endless loop of we fixed a little piece, please restart. I went through 20 cycles of having to gain a command prompt through the windows disk (as I couldn't bring a command prompt up any other way) to figure that idea was a bust.

And as for the clean operating system re-installation run, I'm already 2 steps ahead of you, when I noticed the Partition issue, I re-installed windows and Alien Respawn, but the Alien Respawn crashing issue was happening again, since my laptop was moving at a snails pace, I started downloading and installing drivers, plus updating windows to see if that helps the crashing issue.  Its a Great idea, I'll post the results once complete.

Re: After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

I managed to get everything together, but Alien Respawn keeps crashing. I think it might me the Premium Edition that's causing it to do so. I uninstalled Premium, Removed all "Respawn" files from the registry, and from the hard drive all together. Unfortunately there is a bunch of restore files throughout my computer that I know are the cause of Basic becoming Premium every time, and Windows being the wonderful user friendly TIME WASTER that it is won't give me access to delete files from my own God <ADMIN NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU> Computer!  I need to catch a couple zzzzzz's, or take up a crystal meth habit, though sleep I'm sure is cheaper, I start up again in about 4 hours, if anyone knows how to tell windows to delete those files for me before then that would be awesome, otherwise its back to the very beginning all over again. *sigh* if that fails I'm pulling the drives and giving up my warranty, all because of a Dell Program.... I've always wanted a solid state in this sexy piece of machinery, who knows maybe it will be a good thing. At least until everything else fails at once two days from now. =D

I suggest you use Acronis or Windows Image Backup instead.

Re: After using Alien Respawn to restore, I get a BSOD stop:oxoooooo7B error every boot up.

Should have done that about 3 months ago. I managed to get all my files in one place, and got them all off the computer, but a lot of good that does in getting my programs and serial numbers all set-up again. I was able to use diskpart to change the stupid partitioning that Alien Respawn created, All my info is now on dive D: so I sent the junk Respawn put in there away and moved d: to c: but when I reboot Dell's wonderful set-up puts everything back. I tried to change boot manager but I'm not allowed because I could harm my boot process. "What the hell is it doing right now?" its like dealing with Apple here, everything need to be done their way only.  Anyone have any clue on how I can change boot managers mind? or set-up a boot from the D: drive, its nowhere in this handcuffed BIOS. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On a side note let me say sorry to anyone who was offended by the way I get around the swearing process, I've always thought it was totally different when I use a "ph" instead of an "F"....     I hope that pleases the Dell employee who wrote me a nice long email on choice of words... Rather than anyone answering the email Ion how to get rid of this BSOD sent a WEEK ago. *sigh* Thanks

Not sure what you are talking about, but you can use EasyBCD (free) to edit the boot.
 
However, I suggest you:
Clean Install Windows-7
Install drivers in proper order
Use Windows Image Backup or Acronis (never re-install Alien Respawn)
- Not sure why you are using Alien Respawn if you lost the original Factory Partition
- Not sure why you re-installed Alien Respawn after a clean install from discs.
 
See my Favorite Thread #1 for the desktop procedure (use as template).
