    BSOD during clean install

    Quick backstory:

    Had Windows 10 Pro running since it came out with relatively few problems. I decided it was time for a graphics upgrade so I threw in an EVGA GeForce 1060. Nvidia decided I needed new drivers and it has been all downhill since then.

    1) I first got a couple of MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSODs while playing Ghost Recon: Wildlands. I assumed I had a bad graphics card so I began the RMA process.

    2) Then I started getting SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED BSODs upon restart. At this point I pulled the 1060 and put in my old 660. Unfortunately, I continued to get both BSODs and it eventually got to the point of an unrecoverable BSOD loop. In retrospect, I'm guessing it was my driver rather than hardware issue.

    3) I have now wiped my OS drive and am attempting to reinstall Windows from scratch, but cannot get my RAID drivers to load due to a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR BSOD. I get this at the install point. I've successfully installed on a single drive, but cannot seem to get it to respond properly to a RAID setup.

    Any suggestions on where I should even begin? I've cleared the CMOS, but nothing seems to have improved.

    Run a test of your memory to see if that is the problem.

    Diagnostic Test


    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.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    Duh. I don't know why I didn't think of RAM. I've been crazy busy at work and haven't had time to run a full test, but there were a couple of errors before a power outage so I'll assume this was the issue until I get more time to dive into the rabbit hole. I'll go ahead and leave it open until I double check it.

    Thanks Phil.
