Windows XP is the most used operating system in the world, let alone Microsoft. It has got the biggest market share and earns maximum revenue for Microsoft. The reasons behind this is that it is easy-to-use, supports almost every hardware component and software application, etc. However, sometimes the Windows XP system too can give problems while starting the system. Such problems can occur due to various reasons such as power outages, using incompatible hardware components, virus infections, abrupt system shutdown, etc.
In such cases, you should resort to using in-house methods to resolve the problem and start the system. If you are not able to find any solution to this problem, then you should use a third-party windows data recovery software to recover Windows files and other data.
Consider a scenario wherein you have a Windows XP system in which you have used a bridged PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) display adapter. You have inserted the display adapter in a PCI slot and upgraded the operating system to Windows XP Service Pack 2. When you restart the system, it fails to do so. An error message is displayed, that is:
“*** Stop 0x000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
The root cause of this error message is that there is an add-on PCI adapter on your computer that has an integrated PCI-to-PCI bridge and graphics adapter. Because of this, the ISA Enable and VGA Enable bridge control registers are not correctly set. And, if the boot controller is assigned the incorrect PCI resources, then the active system drive becomes inaccessible. And hence, the system is unable to boot.
To resolve this problem, you can perform the following steps:
Remove Windows XP SP 2 using the Recovery Console.
Install the 890463 hotfix.
Reinstall Windows XP SP 2.
You will able to access and boot the Windows system using the aforementioned steps. However, there is very big possibility that you may lose the data during this process as it involves installing the operating system. Therefore, to recover Windows files safely you should use a third-party Windows data recovery software. Such read-only tools enable you to recover Windows data without overwriting the original data.
