comment How to disable software-initiated overheat shutdown (due to broken sensors) in Windows 8?
@Debra In a Windows 8 VM, I changed "System cooling policy" in Power Options and the only value changed under CurrentControlSet was Control\Power\User\PowerSchemes\{GUID1}\{GUID2}\{GUID3}\ACSettingsIndex, where GUID1 is the balanced scheme, GUID2 is Processor power settings, and GUID3 is System cooling policy. This is how I figured out the registry entry that controls "System cooling policy".

I tried that by loading the registry hive on another computer and setting ACSettingIndex=0 in the power scheme I use, but nothing changed

Thanks for trying to help, BillP3rd. In the worst case, I could replace Windows by Linux on that machine, but it would be disappointing that Windows won't let the user override its overheat protection.

@BillP3rd Yes, the machine powers off while Windows is loading (at this screen goo.gl/oP0M01), before it reaches the login screen. Unfortunately safe mode gives the same result.

I tried all thermal related options but nothing changed. Furthermore, if the shutdown were initiated by some sort of hardware protection circuit, Memtest86+ would have shutdown, and thermal.nocrt=1 wouldn't have fixed it on Linux. The shutdown is initiate by some software logic in the OS.
