    ntoskrnl bsods on fresh install


    I've recently update to x99 platform and I've freshly installed Windows 10 Pro
    I'm having all sorts of issue with it.

    I ended up reading all sorts of threads regarding bsods in Windows 10 etc (things that didn't happen on the old x79 platform)

    Before posting here I've:
    - Updated to the latest bios for my board
    - Tested Memory via memtest, 1 pass (it took quite a lot for 32gigs)
    - Tested Memory via build in testing tools ( Windows Memory Diagnostic )
    - Tested CPU: prime small ffts (1h) occt - both standard and linpack (30min)

    All tests pass and no issue. The parts are new, no issues durring setup, no issues on other os (let's say ubuntu)
    The thing is that all of these BSODs (that are included) are somewhat related to ntoskrnl
    The bsods are random and can sometimes occur out of thin air :)

    My setup should appear in my info I guess.

    Hi mehusername,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    There are some different crashes, but it looks like you may have some faulty memory given that most bugchecks are having pretty much the same causes and there is a hardware crash in the different crashes.
    Lets first test your memory to see if a test can confirm it, please note that a test isn't always 100% meaning that if the test doesn't find any problem it could be the test is incorrect.
    Please follow the instructions carefully.

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Glad to be here.
    I will run memtest tonight and will get back with a report etc.

    In the mean time, I've restored my old image of Windows 10 on another drive:
    - Installed chipset drivers only for the x99 platform.
    - Removed ai suite and that's about it... I'm guessing it might be a driver issue
    - It has roughly around 8h of uptime without any bsods (which is more than strange)

    I will reply later on with the memtest results.

    OK, this might be useful or not for people that experienced this.

    In my case, the issues were all related to Intel Networking drivers.
    After restoring my old backup and using that one, I did not install any other drivers besides the chipset driver.

    I've used it for two weeks and counting without any issues until, yesterday when I've decided to update my networking drivers.
    Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V, was using the driver that came either with Windows or with my old x79
    networking drivers (the x79 platform, p9x79 pro had also an intel nic)

    So, after updating the NIC driver, more exactly to version 6420.7.68.0 I had my first BSOD in two weeks

    Since I'm backing up on a weekly base, I do have a backup prior to updating my networking drivers.
