    If you have benched enough on your OS, and you are really trying hard... meaning you have gone through many lockups, bsods...

    Then a clean install will do wonders for you, and I bet you can get bumps in your scores as well. Hard bench marking runs an OS down, no two ways about it.

    A good reason to use a Native Boot VHD to bench, with a minimum of programs programs installed, so you don't keep needing to reinstall all your software, keys, and re-setup everything all the time
    Hyper-V - Native Boot VHD | Tutorials

    However, sometimes you might want unrestricted access to physical hardware on your host machine. Native boot gives you exactly that: when a VHD with Windows installed on it is used for native boot in a dual / multiple boot scenario, it will no longer use Hyper-V emulated, virtualized hardware devices but is instead as any operating system installed directly to physical hardware.
    needed to benchmark hardware.

    Native Boot allows you to create a virtual hard disk (VHD), install Windows to it, and then boot it up, either on your PC side-by-side with your existing installation, or on a new device.

    A native-boot VHD can be used as the running operating system on designated hardware without any other parent operating system. This differs from a scenario where a VHD is connected to a virtual machine on a computer that has a parent operating system.

    VHDs can be applied to PCs or devices that have no other installations of Windows, without a virtual machine or hypervisor. (A hypervisor is a layer of software under the operating system that runs virtual computers.) This enables greater flexibility in workload distribution because a single set of tools can be used to manage images for virtual machines and designated hardware.

    You can also deploy the VHD to a PC that already has Windows installed on it, and use a boot menu to select between the existing version of Windows, or the version on the VHD.
    Then just make a copy of the setup VHD and when you "wear out" the version you are using, delete it and copy the saved version over to where the deleted one was.
    From tutorial:
    You can leave the .vhd or .vhdx file in its current location, or copy it to another drive. You can even copy the virtual hard disk to another computer and use it on that computer for native boot. If your intention is to continue using it also in Hyper-V in addition to native boot, leave it where it is

    I used to make my own stripped down version of windows for benching. Can't be bothered to go that far anymore.

    I don't have anything critical on my main rig OS. 20 to 30 mins and I have everything installed that I use. Just enough time for one good coffee and good to go again.

    If I was really serious about my scores I would for sure just use one of the available programs on the web to make my own stripped windows ISO.

    Has anyone ever had a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD with this bench? It may be related to SATA drivers.
    Hi,
    Yep ....violation/ timeout/.... seen them all lol
    Been a little quiet lately I believe but as far as violation is I always thought that was a spectre deal where as timeout... are vcore voltage or input voltage or system agent voltage too low.

    Interesting, I did lower my System Agent VCCSA and VCCIO voltages manually recently so maybe they are too low. So Spectre patches can cause BSOD's?
