    Watch out for Nvidia GSOD on Build 17763.107


    I just converted my production PC from the plain-vanilla 1809 release to Insider Preview with updates, drivers and hotfixes only, because that's apparently how we keep up-to-date on MS fixes until a new blessed 1809 release finally emerges. So I just updated my Nvidia GeForce Driver to 416.81 and as it was finishing up the install, it threw a GSOD with Exception_not-handled as the stopcode and the nvidia driver as the culprit. I've been through this before, and believe it's a bug with the installer not with the driver. When the machine reboots, the new driver works just fine. Also Reliability Monitor shows that the reboot is coming from a bugcheck and it doesn't get charged against the reliability index. Weird, but benign as far as I can tell.

    Just a heads up.

    If you disable fast boot it probably wont happen again.

    I'm sorry, I don't understand. How would turning off fast boot affect the conclusion of the Nvidia installer program? I can see it having an impact at machine startup, but I'm a little puzzled as to how it would affect the behavior of a program when the OS is already up and running. Please explain.
    And FYI, I checked my Asrock FastBoot utility on this machine (allows you to programmatically set status without having to boot into BIOS) and I see it's already turned off:

    I'm pretty sure that means it's not a factor here anyway.
    Thanks for the suggestion nevertheless.

    Hi,

    I honestly admit mine was just a "guess", based on the fact that I usually get several crashes both on win 10 and win 8.1 in different PC until I disable fast boot, I mean windows "Fast Boot" feature, after that reliability history is 10; sometimes it is worth trying.

    Since you already installed is probably useless at this point indeed, and possibly, if it is an installer problem it wont help anyway.
