    Windows 8.1 setup BSODing on netbook


    I downloaded the ISOs and using a USB flash drive. I am trying to install alongside Windows 7. I want to check if brightness control is fixed on 8.1. Netbook is Samsung N145Plus.

    Everything is fine until "getting devices ready 14%" screen, then PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (Basicdisplay.sys)

    Please help

    Here's the minidump recovered.

    Nah disregard, downloading the ISO again seemed to fix it, the only issue is the video controller not being detected but that's another story.

Hi! In autumn 2011 I replaced my mainboard, RAM and CPU because the system I had up until then kept throwing BSODs in my face. Everything was rock solid for about 1 year, including after when I installed Windows 8 on October 30 (been running the various Win8 preview releases before that). ...
