comment Microsoft Windows 7 Debug/Checked Build
The checked build is for software developers. And it's sometimes unhelpful (I seem to recall that some stuff in .NET's System.Drawing namespace is wrong and you get failures that you can't do anything about since you can't control the code in the .NET BCL).

comment Likely cause of BSODs associated with Desktop Window Manager warnings
Let's assume it's one physical core that's damaged. You could try turning Hyper Threading off or seeing if you BIOS allows you to limit the number of physical cores that are enabled. msconfig allows you to adjust the number of processors that Windows will use but to my knowledge you can't adjust which ones.

Look in the event log - the System category. It might say something like Disk 69 failed to <something>. Keep an eye out for any event, but usually the source is volmgr, atapi or disk

comment Install of Update for KB2862330 fails with error 800B0100
If the System Update Readiness Tool encounters problems while running, it records them in a file called CheckSUR.log, which is located in your Windows folder, under Logs\CBS\. On a default installation of Windows this will be C:\Windows\Logs\CBS.
