Default HELP!!! XP Stop Error, inaccessible

I recently installed WinXP SP2 on my laptop computer. About 1 or 2 days later my computer began to hang (the video would freeze, and keyboard inputs would do nothing, however the most pointer would still move).
At one of these instances I rebooted and was presented with a blank black screen after the Windows Xp Home loading screen at startup.
(Note: Safemode, VGA, w/ networking, with prompt <-- NONE would work).

Finally I attempted to perform a repair install... which either hung during install or if completed, would reboot to a Stop: 0x0000007B error.
I tried FixBoot, and other recovery console things.. MDG computers says my HDD is fine, and my RAM is not bad.

Finally i managed a seperate install of WinXP in another folder... it starts fine.. but i want to know if there is a way to fix the old install (the problem is obviously not hardware)

FORMATTING IS NOT AN OPTION (and i think that formatting is just making the problem worse).

I want to the old installation by accessing it from the new installation if possible... PLEASE HELP.

Default Re:


So to be clear, you've made a second partition and installed Windows XP OS in that partition?

I would try and uninstall Service Pack 2 from your first Windows XP Partition and see if you can boot into it. Instructions here: ...

...because you can't boot into Windows XP on your first partition, you'll need to uninstall it in the recovery console, accessible if you boot into your Windows XP Setup Disc.
