I current have a working XP partition a Dell XPS m1330 laptop along with a working Ubuntu partition. After launching the Windows 7 install DVD from within XP I run through the options for a custom install on a free NTFS partition. Everything seemingly works as it should and then my computer restarts. After choosing to boot into the newly created Windows partition I am given the Windows 7 splash screen only to be followed by the BSOD.
Here are the stop codes from the BSOD:
stop: 0x0000007b (0x80D86B58,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x0000000)
Googling this tells me that it indicates an 'inaccessable boot drive'. Is it possible that its having problems booting from this partition due to the other existing partitions?
I'm thinking that there may be a windows recovery CD workaround this but I am not quite proficient in its capabilities.
This is what happens when I try to install by booting from the DVD
