    FNG w/a cry for help. I cruised through the posts, like a good l'il FNG, and I saw some that came real close to what I'm working with, but no answers to solve my prob.

    I_B_D 0x7b after I did a re-install of CD creator 5.0 platinum on my (work laptop) Dell (L) ATTITUDE. I've got about two years of relevent emails (some more than others, of course) that I'd like not to lose so, how do I get the flammin' thing up (i.e. get it to actually BOOT) w/o resorting to having tech support wipe and re-image it? (Sorry guys, but that seems to be OUR t/s answer to every problem) Everything else I loaded (Shhhh. Don't tell my t/s guys) can be done without, or re-loaded.

    I'm thinking that, if I had a boot disk, it would boot, and I could work on (read: try not to make it any worse than it already is) removing the offending software, cleaning the registry, and praying (a lot). FTR, I'm not totally illiterate, when it comes to 'puters. My parents WERE married before I was born.

    Is there somewhere I can download the files for a boot disk fro my (L) Attitude problem?

    Hi 2U2 TW56. W2KPE (sorry, I don't remember which srv pk)

    I saw the same info from your link in one of the other posts about I_B_D 0x7b. None of the info helps me past the initial problem. Inasmuch as none of the options avail under F8 (last good config, debugg mode, safe mode, et-al) will get me past the BSOD. A link to, or, a list of, files to make a boot disk would be a good start. I've done some searching on the net but due to the sheer bredth of info out there, I've given myself a mini-migrane, and my have permanently crossed my eyes... (side note, is there a smiley for crosed eyes?)...searching for a clue.

    I'm at the link now, and surfing my way through. If you know of any quick solutions pass 'em on. If I can't find the help I need I'll be back with another urgent plea, real soon...

    TYVM

    Got the disks down. I've got to get up and go to drill in about 5 hours, so I'm logging off for now. I'll be back tomorrow afternoon and let you know if I was successful. I know, I know, it's kinda like those cliffhanger endings on TV. Sorry. At least you won't have to wonder for a whole summer to find out who shot JR };-)
