    BSOD fresh install on new hard drive


    Hi,

    I have been getting the VERY FUN irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD after doing a fresh install on a brand new SSD. I can't for the life of me figure out what's causing the BSOD.

    Here are the files:

    I din't see anything useful in the first dump but the 2nd dump had this:
    Code:
    BugCheck A, {ffff85c2c0000000, 2, 0, fffff800504cbd70}
    Probably caused by : iaStorAVC.sys ( iaStorAVC!Wcdl::Allocator::freeContiguous+20 )
    Driver Description: Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) driver
    Driver Update Site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx XP

    Looks like you have the most recent Intel DCH driver. Maybe worth trying the older driver from the Alienware download page: https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/alienware-17-r3/drivers

    Just my two pence: there's a newer (v16.8) RST driver, released quite recently, and available here @Intel:

    He already has the latest, dated 2018-02-07. That's why I suggested trying an older one, especially since the new one is their new DCH driver that they are replacing all older drivers with. New stuff sometimes new problems.

    If you keep running into problems, see if you can go into BIOS and switch the SATA operation to from "RAID" to "AHCI". This will cause Windows to see your drive as a standard AHCI-compliant disk and it will not bind Intel's RST driver, instead it will use the Microsoft storahci driver.

    Don't know if it will work for you but when I disabled C-States and SpeedStep in my BIOS I stopped getting random BSODs, may be worth a try?

    According to information contained in msinfo32.nfo OP supplied:

    c:\windows\system32\drivers\iastoravc.sys (15.44.0.1010, 864.30 KB (885,048 bytes), 2018-09-15 2:28 AM)

    This driver is quite old - the latest one is v16.8 - and there were quite a few versions released by Intel in the meantime either:

    Downloads for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST)

    Also, this is not a DCH driver either:

    As of November 2018, driver updates for Intel products on these operating systems will begin transitioning to Windows DCH Drivers

    Just sayin'.

    EDITED TO ADD: Worth disabling Link Power Management:

    Where did you find the version info in msinfo32.nfo? I don't see it. That's handy info to have.<br>

    Ah, I never look at the raw data as I have a program that formats it and apparently is leaving out some interesting and useful stuff. Thanks.

    Also, if you just double click on msinfo32.nfo you get the System Info formatted display which also does not include that data. Not good.
