    Bsod windows 8


    Solved it by using instructions. /Name:"Windows 8 Consumer Preview" obviously didn't work, so my 13-year brother advised to try using Index:1. That worked like magic!

    So:
    1. Download the Image. it's the original MSDN windows 8 professional retail.
    2. Burn to a flash drive using Microsoft windows 7 usb-dvd tool.
    3. Follow instructions:
    All Fixed

    Performed the following:
    mkdir C:\mount
    Dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:L:\install.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\mount (mount install.wim from flash drive L to local directory on disk C)


    Use the Windows Search Feature and Search for "amdsbs"

    Replace all amdsbs.sys files with the version from the Development Preview (you will need to change permissions/take ownership of files:
    MountDir\Windows\System32\Drivers
    MountDir\Windows\Winsxs
    MountDir\Windows\System32\Driverstore\FileReposito ry

    Dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\Mount /Commit (Some people had to kill explorer.exe to do this as it kept locking the file. I did non need it)

    Did this for both Install.wim and Boot.wim, no bluescreen on AMD RAID/AHCI now.
    Update: no, that didn't work. I will try replacing this file while working under IDE mode.
    Any instructions on how to get back to IDE mode if i switch my windows to AHCI not (through regedit)?

    I know this is gonna sound stupid, but I have no clue what any of this means, I get the same error upon start-up of my hp envy h8-1450... I can't even get to the user log in... it just automatically gives me a bsod and restarts, then repeats endlessly... tryed reinstalling os with system recovery and that didnt work... I did not receive any backup media with my pc either... I just got it yesterday and it started having problems upon the second time starting it... if anyone could take the time to give me instructions for a beginner on how to replace the .sys file especially when i cant even access my computer that would be extremely helpful... thank you.

    The only solution i can see is to remove HDD from your notebook, connect it to a PC, replace the sys file and then connect it back to your notebook.

    Got It To Work


    So I actually got my computer running, first off my pc is a desktop not a notebook, but anyways im not sure if my problem was entirely the same as everyone elses or not but Dixon's amdsbs.sys did the trick, anyways i noticed that when my computer did turn on for a short time b4 getting a bsod that it seemed to give me the bsod as soon as a notification from my pre-installed norton av popped up. So I reinstalled the OS yet again, this time choosing the custom option not to activate norton, then as soon as I was luckily able to get onto my desktop, I immediately uninstalled norton, and then took then replaced the amdsbs.sys on my computer with the new 1 off of a flashdrive by renaming the old 1 amdsbs.old and then copying in the new one, after a quick restart my computer is running great and the problem seems to be fixed, I don't know too much about system files/drivers so Im not sure if this is a permanent solution or not, Anyways I hope this in someway helps someone who reads this. Most of all thank you Dixon for the new .sys... saved my new pc and my weekend =D

    Update:
    After sucessfully running in IDE mode, i tried to switch to AHCI. I tried:
    1. Installing fresh AMD drivers (neither of them replaces amdsbs.sys posted on the 1st page)
    2. checking system/StorAHCI (it replaced msAHCI in wondows 8) for the "Start" parameter it was already set to "0"
    3. tried to enable AHCI in bios and start - got bsod+instant restart.
    4. tried to boot from windows 8 usb flash drive and "automatically look for problems" - none found.
    5. switched back to IDE in bios. got BSOD.
    6. restored to last system restore point. it works in IDE once again.

    any thoughts? new amdsbs maybe?

    Can anyone please rename this topic? It's not really solved completely yet.

    Changing the type of sata port after the system was installed has never really worked for me. I've tried it on Win7 before, had the same results that you had. It's a separate issue to what you're having I believe. If you use the ISO I provided, and re-install Windows 8 with AHCI turned on, I'm betting you'll not have the BSOD's.

    And as far as MY issue was concerned I marked it as solved. If you have a spare drive try doing the install above and see if it fixes the problem for you as well. Also when you did the ISO image yourself, did you make the changes both in ALL the images on the DVD? I had to change it in I think 4 different sets (in the boot.wim, 2 different images, 3 places each for installing and troubleshooting, and in the install.wim, 2 images, 3 places each for the INSTALLED system).

    I am unable to download your iso — it's too slow and unstable. Can you please post it as a torrent? I do have a spare drive and i will try it.

    I replaced the file 3 times for the install.wim and 3 times for the boot.wim. the image was the retail x64 dvd.

    Alright, i finally downloaded your ISO. I'll try it.

    Do you suggest to make a clean install formatting the SSD? or just a "refresh"?
