I tried to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (64 bit) on my Dell notebook. Everything worked fine up to the first reboot after the installation. When booting, right before the Windows logo appears, a bluescreen with code
STOP 0x0000007B occurs. Booting in safe mode is not possible, as it states a corrupt SP1 installation and wants to restore the system.
Restoring resulted in several system problems (.NET framework for example). So I decided to do a fresh install of Windows 7 and then install the SP1 directly before installing anything on the new install.
As you perhaps already guessed: it did not help a thing. Bluescreens on almost every boot attempt. I then found some articles which said, it may be a SATA driver problem and I switched from AHCI to IDE with no success.
What could be the problem? Any guesses and advices?
