Win2000 stop message booting to safemode, help!

Postby Intimidator on Sun Apr 24, 2005 2:46 pm

I am running Win2000 Pro SP4

I only get this message when trying to boot into SAFEMODE

Stop: 0x0000000A (0xEB917354, 0x000000FF, 0x00000001, 0x80464079)
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Address 80464079 base at 80400000, Datestamp 42258bd8 ntoskrnl.exe

I cannot boot into safemode anymore.....this was not an issue until recently. I am not sure when this started since you very rarely need to boot into safemode.

Please help!

Can I just replace the ntoskrnl.exe file? Will that fix the issue?

Late last year I replaced my fax/modem with the USR 5699B and downloaded the W2K driver off the USR webpage.

I added a BENQ 1620 DVD-burner in early Jan 2005

Then upgraded to an 80GB HD in mid Jan 2005

That is all the HW changes I have made. I wonder if the USR modem is the cause of this message?

I saw this as a possible solution for that IRQL but can this same list be used in w2k pro?


To resolve this problem, perform the following steps:
1. Restart the computer.
2. press the <F8> key to display the Windows XP startup menu.
3. Press the <Down Arrow> key to select Safe Mode Command Prompt and then press the <Enter> key.
4. Click to select the Administrator account.
5. Type cd\ and then press the <Enter> key.
The c:\> prompt appears.
c:\> attrib -r boot.ini
6. Type edit boot.ini and then press the <Enter> key.
The boot.ini screen appears.
7. Under the boot.ini screen under the Operating system section you wiil have a path as shown below.
[operating system]
device=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)"Microsoft windows xp home edition"
8. Type a switch "/pcilock" after typing you will see the path as shown below.
Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)"Microsoft windows xp home edition" /pcilock
9. By doing so windows stops dynamically assigning the irq's(Interrupt Request) to the devices and
It takes the irq's assigned by the BIOS.
10. So this is going to solve the issue and also by following this article we can
Even overcome the bangs on the cd drives.dvd drives after upgrading the system to windows xp from windows me/98 etc.

Have you tried creating a boot log? I think that's one of the options when you hit F8.

This is a little more hard core, but set it up so that when it blue screens, it does a memory dump. You can then use Microsoft's debugger to see where the problem lies.

Update......bootlog will NOT work since this ONLY occurs whe trying to enter safe mode.

Booted to recovery console.

Ran CHKDSK no problems
Ran CHKDSK /p one or more errors were found
Ran CHKDSK /r all the errors were fixed

Tried to disable mup.sys since this was the last file that is loaded in safemode but service was not found.

Rebooted to safemode but error still remians.

What next?
