Windows Seven BSOD - aswrvrt.sys
« on: March 26, 2014, 08:41:07 PM »
Hi all.

I had Avast running for some time with no problem. As of 4/5 days ago, I cannot boot into any form of Windows inc. safemade. When attemting safemode, I see that it is getting stuck at aswrvrt.sys and then the BSOD happens.

Please, if anyone can advise.

I did search, and I found the reply of Essexboy, but some of the links to the software seem to have expired.

Many thanks.

Download the following three programmes to your desktop :
 
 
1.  Rufus 
2.  Windows 7 RC I will PM the link
3.  Farbar Recovery Scan Tool  
 
 
Insert the USB stick Then run Rufus
 
Select the ISO file on the desktop via the ISO icon. 
 
Press Start Burn

Then copy FRST to the same USB   
 
   
 
 
 
Insert the USB into the sick computer and start the computer.  First ensuring that the system is set to boot from USB 
Note: If you are not sure how to do that follow the instructions Here
 
 
When you reboot you will  see this although yours will say windows 7.
 Click repair my computer  
 
 
Select your operating system  
 
 
Select Command prompt 
 
 
At the command prompt type the following  :
 
notepad and press Enter
The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open
Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad. 
In the command window type e:\frst64.exe and press Enter 
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive. 
The tool will start to run. 
When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. 

Press Scan button. 
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

When booting from the USB, I keep getting a window titled Windows boot manager which says windows failed to start.A recent hardware.....

file: windows.system32.acpi.sys

status: 0xc000098

Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

It really depends on what occurred just prior to the BSOD
