BSOD 0x07b with IDE set and BSOD 0x07f with AHCI set in BIOS..... What gives? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Windows XP SP3 on a HP Elitebook 8740w Laptops in a Medical Setting.

    Machines try to boot in to XP and I get  BSOD 0x07b with IDE set and BSOD 0x07f with AHCI set in BIOS.....

    Lately we have had a rash of blue screens.  All hdds come back clean.  No issues hardware wise.  This is getting to be an epidemic and I need a solution quickly. 

    Did all the obvious, ran Symantec, fix MBR, chkdsk....

  • Drivers.  You probably don't have the correct MB or controller card drivers installed.

    Also, check your memory.  Download Memtes86+, make bootable CD, and check memory.  Bad or faulty memory is the cause of a lot of BSOD issues.

    This might be a settings issue in BIOS. Please change the settings from SATA to AHCI Or AHCI To SATA. Its should be under integrated controllers in BIOS.

  • So, I did change the bios.....   "BSOD 0x07b with IDE set and BSOD 0x07f with AHCI set in BIOS"

    If I reimage with an older image, it is fine until I run Windows Updates and it crashes again.  I am trying to figure out which update is crashing it.  Anyone know?  Is there a recent update that effects this?
