Find your minidumps
Paste the Small dump directory string you found in Startup and Recovery Dialog (eg. %SystemRoot%\Minidump) in explorer and hit go


NOTE: According to Microsoft, there are several reasons why the Memory.dmp file is not being created when your computer encounters a STOP message:

Let me open the feedback with my usual BSOD report. And as usual no minidump, though I did write down the details.

  1. Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bits edition. No service packs installed.
  2. AVG Anti virus Free edition (v7.5.503), Teatimer (Spybot S&D
  3. BSOD as soon as Windows Vista wants to go to the desktop (glowing windows icon on black background has appeared and is gone again).

BSOD details :


STOP: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x0000113D, 0x001C0000, 0x8A87D200)

This BSOD only happens when Defense+ is enabled. When I switch off Defense+ (disable, not the new mode) the BSOD doesn’t occur (at least not on bootup, can’t be certain a BSOD will not happen later. This was the case with the previous beta, which would BSOD after a random period somewhere between 4 hours and 3 days).

  1. Just boot the system with Defense+ enabled and the crash occurs
  2. Added below.


Stability is still an issue. My system uptime rarely makes it beyond 1 - 1.5 days before it BSOD’s on me (usually BAD_POOL_CALLER). This with Defense+ set to Disabled (so installed, but not active, not the new don’t install option).

And as always no minidumps for these crashes.

Also Windows Update doesn’t seem to be able to install its patches/updates.
