JSI Tip 1897. BSOD: STOP 0x0000001e in Ntoskrnl.exe?

If you receive the following during boot:

STOP 0x0000001e (0xc0000005, 0x801a8a83, 0x00000000, 0x005c0069)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED Address 801a8a83 has base at 80100000 - ntoskrnl.exe

you may have a corrupt SOFTWARE hive.

If your ERD won't repair it, it probably is registry corruption.

The safest method of recovery is to restore the SOFTWARE hive from a backup.

If you don't have one, you could try tip 0505, replacing only the software hive.

NOTE: You will loose registry entry made since the last RDISK.EXE execution.
