XP-Home OEM v5.1.2600 SP3 32bit AMD Athlon 64


Hi,

I am unable to make any crash dumps, currently i am trying to decipher a problem with a driver i use for boot logging, but when the BSOD occurs no crash dump is written at all.

the configuration is set to default:

Write an event to the system log: True
Send an administrative alert: True
Automatically restart: True
Write debugging information:
Small memory dump.
Location: %SystemRoot%\Minidump
Overwrite any existing file: True


the minidump directory exists in my systemroot.

does anyone have an explanation? can anyone point me to the correct registry key? i can export it then copy and paste here for analysis.



Cheers (:

You should turn OFF automatic restart just on general principle.

So you have a page file on your boot drive? Some people run without one.

You said "I am unable to make any crash dumps".

I asked a logical question given this: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/314482


I try to provide help to people that need it - you obviously know the answer already.

ciao

to be honest i just asked because i was confused by your seemingly vague question and statement that appeared to change the subject.

really?? great, whats that got to do with me?
so yeh i would naturally ask that question.

i realise now it was just a typo but you could be a little more patient.


thanks anyway mate, my OS is not installed on the boot partition, i was hoping i wouldnt have to start delving into the MBR, instead i just shifted my page file.

Thanks again
