This document describes how to troubleshoot Stop:0x0000007B error messages in the Media Convergence Server (MCS), which also displays a blue screen while it boots.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS) 78xx
The information in this document is based on the Cisco MCS 78xx.
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

When the MCS server, which is either loaded with Cisco Unity or Cisco CallManager, is booted up, the Windows splash screen comes up and then displays a blue screen with this error: STOP: 0x0000007B Inaccessible Boot Device.
This STOP: 0x0000007B Inaccessible Boot Device error occurs whenever there is a error in the hard disk controller. INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE is almost invariably caused because Windows 2000 does not have an appropriate driver available for the hard disk controller in your machine. It performs the initial copy operation in DOS mode, but then it restarts and attempts to start up in full-on Win2K mode; without a driver, it cannot find the boot disk: hence, the error.
Make sure that you use the right MCS server for the right application. In order to install a Cisco CallManager, you require a MCS server with part number MCS-78XX-EVVx or MCS-78XX-IPCx. In order to install Cisco Unity, you require a MCS server with part number MCS-78XX-ECSx. For information on CallManager server support, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Server Support Matrix.
For example, try to match the suffix in the part number of the MCS server to the application mentioned in this table:
|Cisco Unified Communications Manager||MCS-7835-H2-IPC1|
|Cisco Emergency Responder||MCS-7835-H2-IPC1|
|Cisco Unified Presence||MCS-7835-H2-IPC1|
|Cisco Unified Intelligent Contact Management Enterprise||MCS-7835-H2-CCE1|
|Cisco Unified Intelligent Contact Management Hosted||MCS-7835-H2-CCE1|
|Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise||MCS-7835-H2-CCE1|
|Cisco Unified IP IVR||MCS-7835-H2-CCX1|
|Cisco Unified Contact Center Express||MCS-7835-H2-CCX1|
|Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal||MCS-7835-H2-CCE1|
|Cisco Unified MeetingPlace conferencing||MCS-7835-H2-RC1|
|Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express||MCS-7835-H2-RC1|
|Cisco Unified IP Queue Manager||MCS-7835-H2-CCX1|
|Cisco Unity Unified Messaging||MCS-7835-H2-ECS1|
|Cisco Unity Connection||MCS-7835-H2-UC1|
|Cisco TelePresence Manager||MCS-7835-H2-CTS1|
|Cisco Digital Media System||MCS-7835-H2-DM21|
The system cannot access the boot device. Often, this message signifies a disk controller configuration problem or an error in the access of the hard disk. This clearly indicates that Windows has lost access to the system partition within startup. One of the possible problems is that SATA RAID is disabled, in which case, the hard disk controller is loaded with the IDE driver and cannot access the boot device. Similar issues can occur when you perform an upgrade of the CallManager.
In this issue, reboot the server, and press F9 function key while it boots.
Check if the BIOS settings for the RAID are fine and running.
Another possibility is that the file system cannot recognize the data on the boot device. The message can also mean that a virus has infected the boot sector. Use an anti-virus program to remove the boot-sector virus.
Another solution to this problem is to reinstall the Operating System and install the Cisco CallManager or Cisco Unity application on it. More information in regard to the Stop:0x0000007B Error found on Windows 2000 Operating System is available in the Microsoft knowledge base; refer to How to troubleshoot "Stop 0x0000007B" error messages in Windows 2000 .
