Error code 0000007E

Error code


As per M954589, when you plug a USB storage device into the USB port of a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008-based computer, the operating system may crash. A hotfix is available.

Another hotfix is described in M965494. In that case, this error is caused  because the registry management module does not manage mapped views in memory correctly.

M967999 describes a situation when this problem occurs because the Disk.sys driver incorrectly associates an unclaimed geometry structure with a device object that does not have geometry information.

This Stop message appears when a system thread generates an unrecoverable exception.
As with most Stop messages the cause of this bugcheck can vary from faulty device drivers, a damaged driver or system service, to hardware related problems such as bad RAM. As a general practice, one should update to the latest drivers or firmware available. A BIOS update should also be considered, especially if the problem is encountered during the installation phase of a Windows OS.

The driver that caused the problem can be found in the BSOD or in the dump file generated with each bugcheck. See M314084 for information on how to gather information after a memory dump.
M244617 provides information on how to use the Driver Verifier to troubleshoot Windows Drivers.

Performing a clean boot can also be helpful in troubleshooting this problem. See M281770, M310353, and M316434 for information on performing a clean boot.

M820362 provides a hotfix for this problem applicable to Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

Additional information on this problem can be found in M310628, M321637, M330182, and the “Windows DDK”.
