    Windows 8.1 BSOD: Invalid kernel auto boost lock release

    I'm running windows 8 pro x64intel i5 2400 @3.10 ghz
    ram 8gb

    first i tried installing via store, but there's an error.. we can't connect to the internet right now
    so i tried downloading the iso version via (upgrade with a product key)
    made a bootable usb out of it

    inserted the usb into a USB 3.0 hub while win 8 is running
    proceeds with the upgrade then after the setup restarts and says "Setting up"
    i get error 0x101 0x30018 searching the net i found some solution like
    update amd graphics driver, disable lan etc via bios, update your bios
    did all that... still same

    next: tried uninstalling tuneup utilities
    inserted the USB installer to a USB 2.0 Hub
    Somehow i got past to the stage "applying settings 99%" then 100% restarting and now i got the ....restoring to previous version

    currently: trying to remove eset, hope it helps... will post soon if i can get this running <<eset removed same issue

    No memory dumps in this upload. Please try this:
    Upload Dump Files:
    NOTE: If using a disk cleaning utility, please stop using it while we are troubleshooting your issues.
    Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
    Left click on the first minidump file.
    Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
    Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
    Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
    Upload that .zip file with your next post.

    If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

    If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

    Also, search your entire hard drive for files ending in .dmp, .mdmp, and .hdmp. Zip up any that you find and upload them with your next post.

    Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDumpMore info on dump file options here: Overview of memory dump file options for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2
    No significant errors in the WER section of MSINFO32
    Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    Remove Comodo. Keep ESET off and use Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall until everything is stable.
    NEVER use more than one antivirus or firewall at the same time.

    Uninstall Gigabyte EasyTune (ET6) - a known cause of BSOD's
    If Gigabyte EasySaver is installed - uninstall it also

    Uninstall Razer GameBooster - known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems

    Ensure Razer and Kies drivers are the latest, Win8.1 compatible version.
    FWIW - I was unable to install 8.1 on my Samsung NP780 laptop - there are indications that it might not be compatible.
