I had originally wiped my SSD (originally running Windows 10 only with no problems) in order to dual boot OS X El Capitan and Windows 10 on the same SSD. I formatted and partitioned my SSD through Disk Utility on the OS X installer and then installed Windows 10 on one partition. However, without even installing OS X on the other partition, I have encountered random BSODs no matter what I'm doing, with various stop codes that have included "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED", "UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION", and "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR".
I was unable to attach the perfmon output, as the Resource and Performance Monitor has not produced a single output after 30 minutes of it saying "Collecting data for 60 seconds".

I have to wonder if the "Hackintosh" setup has corrupted the hard drive.

If this is the case, I'd suggest re-initializing the hard drive and setting it up for GPT and NTFS.


If that doesn't fix things, then I'd start with these free bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html


If you wish to stay with the setup as you have it now, here's my analysis of the reports that you submitted.


Your UEFI/BIOS (version 1.2.18) dates from 2016.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  This is just in case there has been a more recent update.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).

Only 3 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most build 14393 (1607) systems have more than this.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.
The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.

Beyond that, I don't see any significant errors in the reports (not even BSOD's).
That, along with the random BSOD errors that you quoted, are usually symptomatic of a hardware, compatibiliyt, or low-level driver issue

Please start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Please run ALL of the tests and let us know the results.
