Hi Christine, 
You may receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" maybe because of Device Driver Issues. A device driver that the computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process. 
  1. restart your computer / laptop.
  2. On start up, Press f2 to enter BIOS
  3. Expand the "Drives" Section
  4. Go to "SATA Operation" 
  5. Change this from "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/ATA"
Hope it could help.
Thank you
