    BSoD persistent within 5 minutes of cold boot

    One week-old install of Win Pro 8 as upgrade over Win 7 Pro 64-bit. All drivers updated to latest via Dell, nVidia card via nVidia site. McAfee stripped off, Win Defender only. BSoD with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION within 5 mins of power-up, persistent failure.

    Dump attached; grateful for your help.

    This points to iastor. Upgrade ssd firmware. Upgrade bios.

    Intel iastor is a difficult one. You might not want to uninstall it, as it might render your system inoperable.

    I would try to upgrade to
    Rapid Storage Technology (RST)
    drivers + patch
