So here’s the situation, PC dies you remove the hard drive and put it in a new PC. It boots and you receive a BSOD error 0x0000007B. If you do the following : –
- Exit all Windows-based programs.
- Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
- If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
- Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:
- In the pane on the right side, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
- In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
- On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
It may well boot, this worked for us. The above is pulled from MS KB Article 922976, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
