*** STOP: 0x0000007B

I realise this may not be the correct place to post but so far have not
been able to find an active news group for windows vista.

Since increasing the size of the partition on which i have Vista Home
Basic installed it has refuses to boot, stops at BSD:

'If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart
your computer.
If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer, remove any newly installed hard
drives or
hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly
configured, and terminated. Rucn CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive
corruption,
and the restart your computer.

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFFA60005AF900, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034,
0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)'

I have run an up to date virus checker over the partition, rebuilt the
partition table, reinstalled the MBR, de fragmented the entire disk, run
DSKCHK /F, tried the rescue from the CD, tried re-installing drivers,
searched the knowledge base and many community forums, all without
locating a solution. And contacted MS who say i'm not entitled to ANY
support unless i pay then 46GBP....back to Linux me thinks, unless
anyone here can help or direct me to an active support/news group.

<rant>
Think i should have bought XP64 instead as Vista seems to be back in the
WinSE era with wierd issues, incompatabilities (half my software won't
run), driver problems and it tries to tell me how i should use my
computer, wants to install run security software thats not secure and
not needed on my system etc. etc. Stuff that by default should be turned
off with the option to turn it on if required, instead i have to rumage
around in its internals to find some way to turn stuff off and make it
stay off .... ARGGGG.
</rant>

Thanx for any feedback.

Vista newsgroups
microsoft.public.windows.vista.general
microsoft.public.windows.vista.administration_account
microsoft.public.windows.vista.hardware_devices
microsoft.public.windows.vista.installation_setup
microsoft.public.windows.vista.mail
microsoft.public.windows.vista.music_pictures_video
microsoft.public.windows.vista.networking_sharing
microsoft.public.windows.vista.performance_maintenance
microsoft.public.windows.vista.print_fax_scan
microsoft.public.windows.vista.security
microsoft.public.windows.powershell

Vista.general would be a good place to start.
