I have received a Blue Screen Error but I do NOT have the XP disk
I have received a Blue Screen error: Technical Information; STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC00001D, 0x80537008, 0xF79AF3B8, 0xF79AF0B4)
I have an HP mini 1000 with Windows XP Home Edition and I do NOT have the Windows XP disk.
None of the options under F8 work; no matter which option I choose; safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with comand prompt, last known good configuration, etc....nothing works. They all take me right back to the "Start Windows Normally" page with the same options. I have removed any external hardware devices.
I need to know how to get Windows rebooted, without a disk, and without being able to run the computer in safe mode.

If you cant get online on your pc you're gonna need to go to someone else's and download a windows boot disk from the ms website then boot your pc from that, choose recovery console then repair boot partition.

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.
There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.
A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.
Above error may occur due to insufficient hard disk space available for Windows XP. Make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space. Computer BIOS might be incompatible with Windows XP or it might have to be updated. A device driver or a system service might be damaged.
Don't give up try booting into SAFE MODE press F8 at bootup and choose safe mode, with networking. Then at least you can troubleshoot what is wrong, it is often a bad Video driver. It may require reinstalling or updating, or some other driver that is giving you this BSOD.
Not a lot of help here, other than to suggest it's caused by some hardware or driver conflict, but see this ms article. You could try then, this link to stop error codes, and these MS links here and here I suggest you google "0X0000007E + pci.sys" and read the forums to see if someone out there has a solution...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
Most chances is that the problem is with your WINXP disk. Try to tell me which bluescreen error you get (a Stop error, a Swap error, a Communications error etc...) It should tell on the bottom of the error
