What does the blue screen error code "0x0000007B" mean?
Usually this error occurs when a problem occurs during the initialization of the I/O system; often the startup device or the file system.
Windows XP lost access to the system volume or boot volume during the startup process.
Initialisation of the I/O system failed (usually the boot device or the file system), Windows lost access to the system volume or boot volume during the startup process. This error always occurs while the system is starting and is often caused by one of the following:
- e.g. A failed boot device
Corrupted or incompatible storage drivers
- SCSI, RAID, UDMA IDE, SATA
- File system problems
- Boot sector viruses
- Outdated firmware
During I/O system initialisation, this error can occur when
the controller or driver for the startup device (typically
the hard disk) failed to initialise the necessary hardware;
The file system initialisation failed because the system did
not recognise the data on the boot device.
This error can also be caused by an incorrect Advanced RISC Computing (ARC) path in BOOT.INI. ARC paths are used to define the path to the Windows installation on Intel x86-processor-based machines.
Also refer to below link that describes Boot.ini and ARC path naming conventions and usuage.

There is one exception to this rule. If one of the computers contains the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) multiprocessor HAL, the other computer can have the ACPI uniprocessor HAL. The same rule applies to MPS multiprocessor and MPS uniprocessor HALs.
