    My perosnal desktop is not booting.....When i boot ...

    It starts booting and then a blue screen appears

    Stop!!..error @ OxAE.......
    if this is the first time ...reboot and etc........


    Then I removed the hard disk and attached it to a friends hard disk as a slave....

    The system was able to detect the hard disk and i was able to open the drives and its contents...

    But booting with the hard disk as master is not happening....What to do???

    Regards

    Try to boot to the drive as a master again. This time note down the error codes and any drivers that show on the blue screen.

    It won't boot in your friend's machine unless it is identical to yours.

    From "Pri Master HDD error", it looks like a problem with your hard drive. What does the screen that shows this error look like? Does it look OK in BIOS (size, parameters, location--be sure to turn on S.M.A.R.T., if it is not enabled).

    Please give the complete text of any error pages (except the obviously useless).

    Let me add my problem to this post. I cannot boot windows either. I get the following message:

    Stop: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
    The windows subsystem system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000006 (0x75ebdd6c 0x0069eb80). The system has been shut down.

    I don't even know where to start with this. Can anybody help??

    Thanks, bobhen

    You may want to start your own thread on this.

    Have you changed any permissions that may prevent system access to certain files?

    http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?scid=156669

    The usual recommendation for this error is a repair installation.

    All you do is boot from the CD. When it asks if you want to repair and to press "R", don't. Continue with the installation just like you were installing for the first time.

    You will then get a license agreement and it will ask you to press F8 to agree. Right after that screen, you will see a list of Windows installations that setup found. It will ask if you want to repair it. Read the directions on that page!!!

    Then, you will actually press "R" this time and XP will re-install.

    When done, you will be back to your familiar desktop with everything looking just like it did before. But all your Windows Updates are gone and you will need to get those again.

    If you have any problems booting from CD, set the CD to boot earlier then the hard drive in BIOS setup, or come back for more help.

    Thank you for the input, Elvandil. I will try that tomorrow. I agree that I should have started another thread on this problem, but I don't know how to change it now.

    I have now discovered that the hard drive is dead! Bought a new one and am spending my life reloading everything. At least I do keep good backups of my data. Thanks to all.
