Do you guys think [system] not being the owner of my boot partition could cause safe mode (only) problems?

stand alone box



My problem is that windows in normal mode passes every test I throw at it with no issues. Same for all the recovery console and other drive related tools.

But all safe modes stopped working probably a year ago easy and get the same error about reading the boot drive. (Stop error 0x0000007b)


Thanks
Dan

Well the security Analise's tool corrected that issue with the volumes owner for me. 8)

But the issue with windows safe mode (all) causing a STOP error when at the same time windows in normal mode works correctly and can not even find any problems has me stumped. oh well... :(

Whew! I finally found out why only safe mode is getting the BSOD on my PC and the cause.(below)

That was a tricky one because the problem is invisible and never
even happened to windows outside of safe mode. Plus trying to narrow
down search result for troubleshooting safe mode only issues was
next to imposable. 8/

SYMPTOMS

When you start your Microsoft Windows XP-based computer after you replace the motherboard on the computer, you may receive a Stop error message that is similar to the following:

STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE


CAUSE

This issue may occur if the new motherboard contains an embedded IDE controller that has a different chipset than the original motherboard.

That's strange, a different IDE chipset than original, that may be from safe mode loading a generic driver I guess but hey you found it, any clue on how to fix it other than a PCI IDE controller?

Safe modes still loading the original Azus/OEM MB drivers (the board I shorted out) and normal modes loading the correct replacement board (Gigabyte na78lm-s2) drivers.

That happened because I could not do a in-place upgrade to my OEM OS (winXP pro MCE sp3) without the correct MB no doubt. 8/



question...
Do you know if a non-MCE Windows CD can be used to repair the MCE version without breaking the windows media center?
