STOP 0x0000007E after upgrading to an AMD platform?

If you get a STOP 0x0000007E error after upgrading to an AMD platform from an Intel platform, i.e. replacing an Intel-chipset motherboard with something like a VIA or AMD or nForce or ATI chipset for an Athlon64, here’s a little hint that’ll help you avoid a complete reinstall from scratch: It’s the “intelppm.sys” driver.

  1. A was afraid of working one more day with my new mobo, but you helped me to make a shortcut :). Thank you very much!

  2. Hi, thanks for posting this. i have been trying to get rid of this probelm for days now and was about to give up. one last google and there was the answer !

    pc is working fine now.


  3. If the above does not work, It may be the SATA Drive and controllers, try to clone to an IDE drive and then turn off the SATA controller on the Mother board, then doe a repair install. But be sure to disable or delete intelppm.sys located in the driver director under the system32 folder. After a successful repair install, update all drivers, turn on the SATA controller at the mother board level and install any remaining drivers, that windows is asking for, then reclone back to the SATA Drive. It works for me.

  4. this was the solution, well done, cloned a dell notebook to a AMD nvidia chipset board, this was the problem all along after 2 days of trying everything, thanks

  5. Thank you so much, really

    I was about to give up and reinstall XP but I was even able to boot in safe mode before solving this problem so I thought it was something fixable.

    Thanks again, thanks a thousand times!
