  • Error 0x0000007b is generated because Windows 7 is missing the driver for your hard drive disk controller.  If you have your controller set to either RAID or to AHCI in the BIOS, then the system usually needs a driver.  You should be able to go into the BIOS and change it to IDE and Windows should then boot-up.

  • Then the only solution I am aware of is to re-install Windows 7.

    IDE is the Compatibility mode for SATA drives and usually does not require any additional drivers for the controller.

    AHCI and RAID are not considered Compatibility Modes and usually require additional drivers for these modes.

  • So what do you do if it's a laptop which doesn't have those features in the bios?
