BSOD during WAIK Customization of WinPE Image

27 posts in this topic

I'm running Windows Automated Installation Kit (the original 2/13/2007 version) on an up-to-date Windows XP SP3 machine, trying to produce a customized WinPE 2.0 image file to boot from CD. If I make no modifications to the original winpe.wim, (for example, following steps in at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd799303), I have no problems.

After imagex is used to mount the original winpe.wim, however, ANY reference to the \mount directory (with Windows Explorer, with 'dir' at the WAIK command prompt, or with another WAIK command such as 'peimg /list /image=c:\winpe\mount' from the more comprehensive steps at http://www.svrops.com/svrops/articles/winvistape2.htm) seems to result in the Blue Screen of Death. (The BSOD says, "STOP 0x00000024..." and mentions ntfs.sys. And yes, I did disable my virus scanner before doing any of this.) I get the same results with WAIK for Windows Vista SP1 (4/9/2009 version), which is also supposed to run on XP, although neither version explicitly mentions SP3.

Old Stuff, but this seems to be the place. Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

run chkdsk /r /f to detect and fix NTFS issues.

MagicAndre1981 -- I did that; no joy. Chkdsk did find and fix problems, but the screen flashed by so fast I could not read it. I can't find the log file; where would it be?

Still the same BSOD with the same STOP code at the same sequence. It did a dump of physical memory (3 GB!), but I doubt you would want to see it even if I could find it.

Any other thoughts? -- jclarkw

Have you checked the SMART values of your HDD?

Also upload the minidump files from C:\Windows\Minidumps, please.

Sorry. Now you've lost me. I don't know what 'SMART' values are, how to find them, nor what they would tell me.

>>Also upload the minidump files from C:\Windows\Minidumps, please.<<

Sorry again. That directory is empty. Is there some dump setting that I need to change to get a 'minidump' instead of a 'physical memory dump' (which I can't find anyhow)?

It should be c:\windows\MEMORY.DMP

MagicAndre1981 -- This is probably way above my pay grade, but I will give it a look.

What about the missing 'minidump?' Why isn't that there?

(I don't think I mentioned that this is a Lenovo T61 laptop, so it might have some wierd Lenovo (or IBM Thinkpad) garbage still on it.) -- jclarkw

Thanks for the reference on memory dumps. I assume you still want a 'minidump.' i will try to generate that and post back.

Virtual memory is currently enabled with a paging file size of 4605 MB. 'Pagefile.sys' show up as a comparably large file in C:\.. (As I said, the system contains 3 GB of ram, although I realize that XP cannot use that much.)

"Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file"

How am I supposed to upload "Mini113011-01.dmp?" -- jclarkw

Dear MagicAndre1981 -- I have finally straightened out my CrashControl settings (they were set to "Complete memory dump"), produced a 'minidump,' and attempted to attach a PKZipped version hereto. The details of the crash are the same as before, running from an 'administrator' account on Windows XP SP3 without loading antivirus: Start/Programs/Windows AIK[original Vista version from 7/13/07]/PE Tools Command Prompt/"copype x86 c:\winpe"<enter>; "imagex /mountrw c:\winpe\winpe.wim 1 c:\winpe\mount"<enter>; "cd mount"<enter>; BSOD, "STOP: 0x00000024... ntfs.sys..." There's no problem with a "dir" from the \winpe directroy that lists the 'mount' directory, but almost anything directly involving the \mount directory itself (e.g., "peimg /list /image=c:\winpe\mount"<enter>) will cause the same crash. Thanks for any help! -- jclarkw

The issue may be caused by the ShadowProtect snapshot driver (stcvsm.sys):
