The “BOOTING IN SAFEMODE DSREPAIR” BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error may appear during the initialization process for Windows XP, Vista, 2008, and Windows 7 and 8. This error appears when the BIOS (Basic Input/ Output System) configuration is incompatible with the ACPI (Advance Configuration and Power Interface) standard that is supported by the operating system. It causes the computer to boot in the Safe Mode and executes an automatic shutdown in order to prevent damage and data loss.

This BSOD error is also caused by hardware, peripherals, and device drivers that are incompatible with the operating system.

This BSOD error is also known as “BOOTING_IN_SAFEMODE_DSREPAIR” and “STOP 0x000000AA“. Some users of Windows OS have reported this error, which normally appears on the screen during the initialization of the system.

To resolve the “BOOTING IN SAFEMODE DSREPAIR” BSOD error in Windows 7, you have to adjust the BIOS from the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) to the IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) mode.
