Windows 8 BSOD on Windows Developer

Just thought I'd crash Win 8 to have a look at the drivers.

Mostly Aug 2011 but the interesting thing is that secdrv.sys is still dated 2006


Really is about time that driver got updated.

We seem to have a different philosophy 'If it aint broken try and try again to break it' ;)

I will second that. If it isnt broken you arent trying hard enough {grin}

You folks want a real dump file for the Consumer Preview to play with..:friendly_wink:

Since I know what is causing it, I thought it might be fun to test your Debugger.

Anyway, here it is.. I don't want to give away too much info, but the other data sources are not needed.


OK Saltgrass.

The jraid driver isn't the latest (or best) released. There was one mid '10 that caused a few problems. Which one I cannot say for certain.

And the Marvell stuff needs updating.

Now spill the beans and divulge what really happened :p

Yes Clark, clue us in.
Your dump file drove my debugger nuts, complaining about the symbols being incorrect. But Kev and I compared notes and noted a couple old driver AHCI /Raid Marvell drivers and the JMicron jraid.sys.

The cause is the basic Network adapter I have been having problems with (e1i63x64.sys).

I am still messing with it, because it seems the situation changes daily as to whether it will blue screen or not. My WinDbg listed it as the problem file, didn't even have to guess. Currently I am in a new install of the OS, but will get you a readout you can compare to what you are getting, after I reimage back to the prior install.

Of course, it might look different on this machine since it was created here....

Interesting, as when I saw that particular driver e1i63x64.sys 12/7/2011 it looked like it would have been the most recent one available from Link Removed for which ever Gigabit Intel NIC you had installed and wouldn't have been on my radar as a problem component.

OK, here is the analysis from my machine, on my machine. Again, I have been having problems with the Network adapter disabling itself after sleep. Rebooting was the only way to get it back, and that resulted in Blue Screens.

I was looking at the install files (.inf) for the Windows 8 version of the adapter (Intel 82579V) and the Windows 7 version. I noticed there is no section in the Windows 8 version for Power Management, but is in the Windows 7 one. Maybe Windows 8 handles that differently, I do not know. The Windows 7 version installs 5 drivers on the drivers details section, the Windows 8 only installs the one.

Anyway, here is the result of the Windbg analysis. I am using symbols I downloaded for the Microsoft site for this version of Windbg, which is for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I am not using the Microsoft public symbol server at this time. Since I just set this debugger up, I may still have some more work to do.

I'm with Randy.

I've got that used to looking at e1i62x64.sys that I just assumed that e1i63x64.sys would be the latest available.

Moral must be don't assume. Anything!

They are also being a little tricky about identifying a file. Small changes, like e1i instead of e1c or e1ic may be used to identify a Windows 8 installed version versus an Intel direct supplied version. But mine came from ASUS and worked fine in Windows 7, no reason a power management setting should be causing blue screens. Unless, possibly the bug fix (see below), was not included in the Windows 8 version.

In my latest install :numbness: I have disabled the onboard adapter and now using a Belkin wireless USB adapter. The drivers are the ones that come with it, since Windows 8 did not recognize the device. All seems to be going well with the default settings.

If the system stays stable, I will install the direct Intel driver, to see if it will run in Windows 8. The download page does mention a bug fix for the previous release. (16.8 to 16.8.1)

I cannot, at this time, recommend you install the WinDbg for the Windows 8 Consumer preview. I saw some problems that might be related and will be checking that out.
