I have got a problem that I have been trying to solve for about a week.
On my ASUS X540SA which originally had Windows 10 installed, I had Kali Linux installed. After some time I wanted Windows 7, so I downloaded an iso image and created a bootable USB drive. I popped it in and after the windows files loaded I got a BSOD. It said:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart
your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is
identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the
manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS
memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe
Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8
to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x0000007e (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF880009A8E58, 0xFFFFF880009A86B0)
I have already tried the following:
Install FreeDOS and then tried to install Windows 7 again
So after I had installed FreeDOS and afterwards trying to install Windows 7, the windows files loaded and there was no BSOD, but the following message appeared:
Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be
the cause. To fix the problem:
- Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
- choose your language settings, and click "next"
- Click "Repair your computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application
is missing or corrupt.
What can I try?
