Windows 7 0x00000074 startup Blue Screen BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO Different problem than all others
Okay here we go. I was being an idiot and changed the msconfig setting for startup processors and memory. i changed it to 1 processor and 256mb of ram for no good reason except to see what happens. So i restart and get the BSOD stated above. The computer
was running absolutely fine and I know it is not a ram problem. I am verry computer literate and have been working on macines for a long time now. I went googling for possible answers and everything I saw was for XP. I have tried last known good config , all
safe modes, system restore system repair. none of them sucessful. Is there a way you could tell me which files to copy from the windows 7 disk to the windows directory, or any other possible solutions??????? I have 6gb of memory so my computer does meet the
minimum reqirements. here is the full code: STOP 0X00000074 (0X0000000000000002, 0XFFFFF88002E22B20, 0X0000000000000002, 0XFFFFFFFFC000009A)
System Restore back to before you made those settings should work.
If you do not have a Windows 7 disk you can borrow a friends as they are not copy
protected. Your System maker will also sell the physical DVD cheap since you already
own Windows. Also you can make a repair disk on another computer.
Try Startup Repair - (If at ANY point you gain some but not full access to Windows come
back and try Startup Repair again.)
