Event 7026 : Service Control Manager Logfile : System - cdrom

You may be face Event 7026 on your Windows systems and as this Event shows that "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: cdrom", you may be wonder that why it is happening while system don't have any CDROM connected with it. In my scenario, I start explore and comes to know that in registry, cdrom service is set to 1 that indicate that it is a system / boot type device.

Cause:

Normally this error / Event ID indicates that there were priviously a CDROM was installed and now Physical Drive is no more connected but its services is up and running.

Solution:

You simple need to disable or set to manual cdrom in registry as under;
  • Click on Start > RUN > Type regedit and Press Enter 
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\cdrom
  • Find Subkey Name Start Type REG_DWORD
  • Set its Data Type to 3 (Manual ) or Disable )
