Hi
ok so I'm getting the Blue Screen message

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF77CA3C0, 0xF7C6A528, 0XF7C6A224)
*** atapi.sys - Address F77CA3CO base at F77B4000, DateStamp 41107b4d

so i tried to run in Safe Mode but went back to the blue screen.

so I ran the XP Boot Disk, and had the option of pressing 'Enter' to Install XP, (although after a series of further options it tells me Windows already exists and re-installing will lose all Windows related files as well as potentially losing My Documents - something I am unwilling to lose)
whilst the other option is 'R', to run the recovery console.
Should I go down this route?
If so, would I be right in then typing FIXBOOT at the DOS Command Screen, selecting 'y' for the partition, and then typing Exit. Upon restarting then ignoring the 'Press Any Key' and seeing what happens?
Or is the 'R' recovery route not a good option?

thanks in advance
