When you try to restart a Microsoft Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) 2.0 for Windows Vista system that uses an AMD Barcelona processor and that has the Operating System Capabilities (_OSC) method enabled in the BIOS, the system will continually restart. Additionally, you may receive the following Stop error message on the screen:
STOP: 0x0000007B: (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
This problem occurs because Windows PE 2.0 for Windows Vista does not support the new AMD Barcelona processor when the _OSC method is enabled.
