    BSOD Driver verifier when updating to Windows 10 1803

    Last week, my PC asked to run Windows 10 update. I ran it a couple of days ago. The update is from version 1709 (current and working without problems) to version 1803.

    However, when it's done and my PC starts to boot again, I get the following BSOD:


    I checked my RAM memory with memtest which returned with 0 errors after multiple hours. Btw, all my hardware is practically new, so I suspect it's a driver issue.

    After a couple of these BSODs, the update was automatically reverted and I'm now safely back on 1709 which is working perfectly.

    Is there any incentive to upgrade? How do I disable these updates?

    Or what could be the problem? I checked my crashdump folder and BlueScreenView, but there was no dump file visible.

    Is Intel Rapid Storage Technology installed on your system? I think that driver might be a component of IRST. Depending on how your system is setup you may not actually need it.

    Why is Driver Verifier running? See here: Disable Driver Verifier. The only time it should be running is when directed to do so by someone here in our BSOD forum and never for more than 48 hours.

    Also, before you attempt the upgrade to 1803 again, make sure you make an image backup using Macrium Reflect or similar to an external hard drive. If you don't have one then it's time to get one. That is THE ONLY sure way to guarantee you can recover if something goes wrong during an upgrade.
