    I'm using driver verifier. No BSODs yet. Here are the screenshots for disk management and minitool partition wizard.

    These are TF and Microsoft links on Windows driver verifier:

    Enable and Disable Driver Verifier in Windows 10
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...3-c48669e4c983

    Increase the number of customized tests by 3 - 5 / hour up the 19 in the Microsoft link.
    If there are performance problems the first three tests can be unchecked.
    Over the 48 hours ideally all customized tests can be performed simultaneously or in sequence.

    I started with the initial 3 tests and kept adding more with no BSODs, until I added all 19 tests, and when I restarted I got a black screen on boot up. I turned it off and back on again, and it booted up normally. I didn't find any dumps but I found this in event viewer.

    Restart windows driver verifier using the latest 9 or 10 customized tests.

    There was a BSOD with dump file between these two crashes.

    Using windows driver verifier over time may produce BSOD with dump files as there was a BSOD with dump file.

    The BSOD may have been spontaneous while using windows driver verifier.

    There was another crash while I was watching a youtube video. The computer just froze. There was no BSOD and no dump files were created. Here's the log.

    1) Turn off Windows driver verifier.

    2) Run Memtest86 version 8.2 (or newer version if available) for four passes.
    Repeat the test so that eight passes are performed.
    MemTest86 - Official Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool
    Use a camera or smart phone camera to take pictures and post images into the thread.
    In case there are any problems uploading images use share links (one drive, drop box, or google drive)
    Memtest86 has a feature to produce a text report.
    Please post this in addition to the images.

    I ran Memtest86 for 4 passes with no errors. I can run more passes overnight.

    Memory testing can have a significant number of false negatives.
    Memtest86 version 8 was free for 8 passes but in January 2019 was changed to only 4 free passes.
    It sometimes takes passes in the 20s to find malfunctioning RAM.
    Best testing is swapping RAM modules when available.



    If Memtest displays test pass for the next 4 passes then:

    a) remove one RAM module
    b) run through all of the steps in the upgrade checklist
    c) make sure the computer is in clean boot
    d) make sure only the windows disk drive is connected during the upgrade
    e) perform an in place upgrade repair with a bootable windows 10 iso: (flash drive > or = 8 GB)
    f) for the menu choice for updates select to update after a successful upgrade

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
    Download Windows 10 ISO File
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    If Memtest displays test fail for the next 4 passes then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM for two tests of 4 passes each to differentiate good from malfunctioning RAM.

    I did 4 more passes with no errors. I was going through the upgrade checklist, and I got a BSOD while running disk cleanup.
