    Windows 8 crash at startup after shutdown


    Hello,
    Some days ago I installed Windows 8 (clean install), everything works fine except that it always crashes after a shutdown. It crashes right at the logo, just freezes there. Also it only happens if I shut it down "properly", if I restart the computer or if I force it to shutdown it doesn't crash. I suspect the problem is a driver but I'm not sure...
    If someone could help.

    Thanks

    Get rid of ddrv.sys I don't know what it does. The file is dated Sat Jun 30 20:55:59 2012. I also don't have the symbols of your kernel. What version are you running?>

    How do I check the version ?
    Also, I deleted the ddrv.sys and it still crashes

    Well... decided to do a clean install and then after installing the usual software I figured out what was the problem.
    Thanks for the help

    The problem was the new feature of Windows 8 called "Fast Startup" - Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8
    Had to disable it and no more crashes at boot. I guess this could be why many people get crashes at boot.

    Can you check that hibernate works? It should be virtually the same mechanism...

    So run a clean install again. Don't install anything, including drivers from windows update. Update your bios. Run the basic display driver. Does it work then? Keep sending minidump files.

    Well I just did a clean install a few hours ago. And it doesn't crash, just starts crashing after I install a program that I really need.
    Although after disabling Fast Startup its good.
