Windows 10: Windows 10 Pro x64 BSOD [special] Solved

    Windows 10 Pro x64 BSOD [special]


    So I am currently experimenting with XenServer and GPU Passthrough, that's why there is a [special] thingy

    So I am having this problem with my VM with GPU passthrough running on XenServer.

    The BSOD says something like: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED(nvlddmkm.sys)

    Specs of the VM:
    Windows 10 x64 Pro
    10GB RAM
    2 sockets 4 cores p/s
    Nvidia GTX660 (Passtrough)
    300GB VMDK HDD

    It is a clean install with only some programs installed from Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once nothing else.
    The BSOD only appears if I passthrough the GTX 660, if I run without the GTX 660 the machine just works.

    Hope someone can help.
    Niels


    EDIT:
    I found a thread where they said that Windows needs to be activated for help on this forum.
    To be clear about this:
    I have license key for Windows 7 Prof. here so I can activate this machine, as I was planning to do, but I don't want to waste a license key if I need to reinstall the VM.
    If needed I can activate it but then I first would like to know if it is even possible to fix this :)

    It is a failure in the passthrough process of the graphics card.
    Code:
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys

    Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+228754 )

    It would be better you contact Xen Project and ask how to do the passthrough successfully.

    Thank you Arc, I thought it was with the windows installation. Thanks for pointing this out. I will try with the xen project.

    I'll mark this topic as solved them :)
