Tried mounting it within Windows, with no success. Windows just reports that the drive is not formatted.
I have tried a new strategy. Basically what I have done is stripped all no essential devices from my system and installed a clean operating system(Windows XP Home SP3) on a different drive with absolutely nothing on the OS, except, well the drivers Windows installed. I installed Comodo Disk Encryption, that’s it. No updates, no intenet, no security software, nothing. The same happens within normal mode, the system just freezes and within safe mode a BSOD (STOP: 0x0000007E(0x80000003, …) very similar to the one I posted previously comes up. The only thing that changes is the last three elements of the BSOD stop error. These are the three BSOD errors that I have got during different occasions:-
STOP 0x0000007E (0x80000003, 0x804E2A46, 0xF7B4AC50, 0xF7B4A94C)
STOP 0x0000007E (0x80000003, 0x804E2A46, 0xF729BCD0, 0xF729B9CC)
STOP 0x0000007E (0x80000003, 0x804E2A36, 0xF7B4EC50, 0xF7B4E94C)
I have checked my error logs and their is a message , that comes up every time the system reboots
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Ftdisk
Event Category: None
Event ID: 49
Configuring the Page file for crash dump failed. Make sure there is a page file on the boot partition and that is large enough to contain all physical memory. For more information, see Help and Support Center at Microsoft Support.

Clicked on the above link, which takes me to the Help centre, where surprise, surpirise, no information is available for this error (typical Microsoft, their OS, their errors, no information available). Some links are given though,
Now the only one of these links that seems relevant is marked with an asterisk, any ideas? :-La :-TU
P.S. I’m also speaking to a support technician named Mark, via their ticket system, but I haven’t heard from him in 2 days… ???
