57144: Acronis Cyber Backup: BSoD after Restore to New Hardware with "Stop 0x0000007B" Due to Restricted Installation of Devices

Last update: 30-04-2021


  1. You restore a machine to dissimilar hardware and apply Acronis Universal Restore.
  2. The process completes successfully, but the restored machine goes to BSoD with error "Stop 0x0000007B".


One of the possible causes is that you are using a Group Policy setting to prevent the installation of devices. Acronis Universal Restore writes values for the new hardware into Windows Registry. If access to the critical device database is prohibited, the attempt will fail and the new hardware will not be recognized thus system fails to boot.


To resolve the issue, set the following registry entries to 0:

  1. Start the machine from a WinPE bootable media.
  2. Load the System registry hive for offline registry editing. The System registry hive is located in %SystemRoot%\system32\config. Check this article, if you need help.
  3. Expand the System registry hive that you have loaded, and then click Select.
  4. In the details pane, locate Current, and then note the value in the Data column. This is the ContolSet version used by the system.
  5. Expand the following registry entry:
    where <00x> is the value noted in step 4.
  6. Change the value of DisableCDDB to 0.
  7. Change the value of DontStartRawDevices to 0.
    If only one of these values is present, change this one. If both these values are missing, the issue has another cause - see the More information section.
  8. Unload the registry hive. Otherwise your changes will not be saved!
  9. Reboot the machine.
