Ok, so this is weird. My laptop was working fine after the excellent help I got on the other BSOD, but now it bluescreens at startup and just barely flickers the error message before rebooting. Even worse is that it doesn't write any dumps :shocked:
This started happening after I moved the hiberfile.sys file to see if it would actually start rather than unhibernate.
I wanted it to do this because I had set the date to 2020 and then forgot to set it back before hibernating. If it tried to start it from the hibernation file it would just say something about being unable to digatally verify the winload.exe file.
So I moved it to a different partition so it would be basically the same thing as deleting it.
I figured I could just move it back if it didn't work. It didn't work so I moved it back but in the middle of doing so it died and only part of the file was moved, the rest was deleted.
So now it is BSODing on me.
I have read somewhere about how it cannot create a dump if the pagefile is disabled or on a different drive. Would removing pagefile.sys and/or hiberfile.sys help?
