My notes say this from another user that had a similar issue on a Dell:

Dell XPS 420 desktop computer. It began with the "bootmgr" message when trying to get computer to go to windows.  She order a new hard drive and when it was physically connected, I put set up disk in computer to boot from and install windows XP, but it always comes to this blue screen with the following errors: ( I am not an expert on computers so any help needs to be in very basic language.)
STOP: 0x0000007E  (0xC0000005, OxF748E0BF, OxF78DA208, OxF789D9F08,Pci.sys   Address F748E0BF     base at F7487000 DateStamp   3b7d855c

The information I got from Daavee on this forum helped me tremendously.  The solution to my problem was to go into the bios and change one thing - "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/ATA".  When I did this and booted from the windows xp cd it magically started installing the Windows XP.

Take a look here:

I don't know why you would perform the steps from Microsoft engaged Support Engineer "expert" Halima S, since the OP did not mark the reply as the answer  - that reply was automatically marked as the "Answer" by a forum moderator after 5-10 days of inactivity (7 in this case) - not the OP (that's the way the forum owners choose to run things here) so you should have very little to zero faith in such automatic "Answers".  And, the Forum Moderator marked "Answer" begins with the word "Hi".  Extremely unlikely to be the "Answer".

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
