Blue Screen During Boot – Loop on Windows XP, Server

So, you have a Windows system that gets a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) during bootup, and you can’t see what it says before it disappears. Not a big deal, except that the system won’t boot into safe mode either, so you can’t do the regular method, using the Windows GUI, to set the system properties settings so that the system does not automatically reboot when the blue screen appears. Yikes! Well, if you want to stop the system from rebooting beforee you can get the STOP: codes, and find out how to fix the problem, here is a really neat way:

How To Disable Automatic Restart For BSOD If You Are Unable To Get Into Windows

Another neat tip from a Japanese Lenovo support board, save me some work today (use Google to translate):

Need to Repair Install Windows (second R during setup) when STOP: 0 × 0000007B (0 × F789EA94, 0) / INACESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE occurs on restore of OS onto new hardware / storage controller.

Thanks all for the help!
