I have Windows XP installed on two partitions of my computer system. The Drive K: is the default drive while Drive C: is a fall back option if Drive K fails to load. But now when I try to log to the default OS, it throws a blue screen error message and redirects me back to OS choice window. I have tried to repair it by running Chkdsk/r, boot using Safe Mode, scanned for viruses using AVG 2012 and also used MalwareBytes to scan the Drive K: but I am still receiving the same error. What shall I do resolve the issue?
BSOD when logging on to default drive
BSOD usually appears if Windows encountered a problem that it needs to stop completely. It can be hardware, software of driver related. If you have installed new software or hardware then got the error, then that may what cause the problem. Try to do a system restore by logging into the safe mode and restore to a previous point prior to the installation. Also, computer may experience BSOD if your Windows partition does not met the minimum amount of free space needed to boot up the Operating System. 15% of a drive’s capacity should be free at all times for windows to load. You may also want to run a virus scan via the safe mode. Updating to available windows service packs and updates can also be of great assistance.
