Hi - I used driver verifier yesterday,it caused a crash the first time I booted, but for some reason it didn't save any dumps. So I so I switched the save dump from automatic to minidump and ran verifier again.

 

It again crashed and now I don't seem to be able to get to Windows safe mode to turn off verifier.

 

I get a never-ending loop of "Bad Pool header" startup crash, followed by automatic repair/diagnosing, followed by the obvious "Windows did not start correctly" and a restart with two options - reset and advanced options.

 

Under advanced I have tried the system restore - didn't work, and command prompt - using verifier /reset had no effect (says no changes made) and it doesn't give you access to msconfig in spite of starting in the windows/system32 subdirectory.

 

So I have focused on selecting safe mode - tried most of them but really want the safe mode with command prompt to turn off verfier.

 

I have yet to be able to boot into safe mode, as rebooting will generate another stop code "Bad pool header" and automatic repair/diagnosing, same menu choices with none of them working for me.

 

Any advice would be great.

 

Thanks

Thanks - it turned out that somewhere along the way the Bios settings changed (not by me, at least not deliberately) to enable a SATA port with a hard drive attached. This causes the login to fail every time. I wanted to use verifier to try to see what the problem was. Moving this over to the BSOD forum.

Since the OP has started a new topic in the BSOD section this topic is now closed to avoid any confusion.

 

@ braincramp2

 

Once you get the BSOD problem sorted out and if you are advised to come back to the Win 10 Support section for a Windows problem then you can either start a new topic or send any Mod a PM and ask for this topic to be re-opened.
