My Windows 7 (x64) installation keeps crashing on me and I need to figure out why.
Here's what I've done so far: - Problem occured after setting an (obviously) too big step in the CPU base frequency (BCLK) to a lower setting. At that point my Windows BSOD'd and did never boot again so far.
Crash occurs always at the same point: After the first red dot of the Windows-Logo appears on the screen. BSOD flashes for an instant, the computer then immediately goes into the reboot sequence.
Safe Mode looks exactly the same
Safe Mode with command prompt shows a list of drivers scrolling by then BSOD's in the same way.
Last known good didn't help
I had recently set up a windows repair disk for my system, but although the "repair" option seemed to do something, it didn't help.
chkdsk shows OK, no errors found.
At this point I had to rule out a hardware problem, so I installed Win 7 again on an empty partition (same disk). Starting that installation, everything works fine. I can run any hardware test I want, play games, etc. - no problems.
I tried startup log on the bad installation but there is no nt*.log/txt file in the bad installations \windows folder.
Does anyone know where I can find the sequence of drivers Win 7 loads at boot? I can get a glimpse on the last driver loaded at the safe mode cmd-line startup but I need to know what's next.
Any other ideas?
