Running multiple instances of VMware causes BSOD

    Running multiple instances of VMware causes BSOD


    Hi, I'm currently using my desktop computer as an host for about 7 VMware machines running at the same time.

    I guess specs are included in the dump, but I'll put them here:
    CPU: i7 2600k
    SSD: samsung evo 840 120gb
    RAM: 2x 4gb DDR3 1600mhz
    GPU: nVidia 570 GTX

    Currently under windows 8.1 final release build, with every last Windows updates available. (fresh install since yesterday)

    After maybe 2 hours of somewhat intensive tasks, my computer restart itself saying : "Your PC ran into a problem" in the blue ribbon UI. If anyone can help me resolve the issue, I'm greatly opened to any fix; even if downgrading the OS is the solution.

    Thanks guys, hope I can get rid of theses errors ASAP! If you need any more information, don't hesitate to ask me.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Available Physical Memory: 754 MB
    This can cause issues with systems - to include BSOD's. I'd strongly suggest running fewer applications until you are able to add more RAM (if the system is capable of handling it).

    This device doesn't have drivers installed:
    Nexus 5 USB\VID_18D1&PID_4EE6&MI_01\7&F6AE341&0&0001 The drivers for this device are not installed.
    Please either physically remove the device from the system, or install the latest, Win8.1 compatible drivers for it.

    The oldest driver on your system is HECIx64.sys - which dates from 2010. This driver is a part of the Intel Management Engine program and must be updated to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Here's an older canned speech that I have about this:
    Please check the list of drivers below for any that date prior to the release of Win8.1 (October of 2013).
    Please verify that each of these drivers is compatible with Win8.1
    If uncertain, please download the latest, Win8.1 compatible version of each one and install it

    Please note that your VMWare installation is one of those that dates from before the release of Win8.1

    If the BSOD's continue, please post back and we'll try some other steps.

    If you are running 7 concurrent machines, you might want to consider moving to 16GB of RAM at a minimum. 8GB of RAM, doesn't provide much space for the host OS and 7 different other VM's.

    Thanks to both of you.

    I'm already considering upgrading my RAM to 16gb, since I have 2 slots left for a dual channel kit.
    I've tried running 6 machines and I got a BSOD even with that. I was on windows 8 last week and I the PC could handle 6 VMs for 10 hours straight. Each machine have 756mb of RAM assigned to it, running tiny7 (stripped down version of windows 7 running minimal service/process for minimal RAM usage). Task manager on my main host tells me that about 90% of my RAM is filled when everything is running.

    Is there any other 'software fix' I can try before going on hardware parts? I've used uniBlue driver software and I've updated 20 of my current drivers which were considered 'ancient'. Everything is up to date now (at least, that's what UniBlue driver is telling me)

    I will provide a new DUMP, since I got other BSOD with the drivers installed. Maybe it can help furthermore?
    If you guys got any other suggestions, Imma try them! Really appreciate the help, thanks!

    Other informations:

    I've ran a memory test for my RAM. No error found. Also did a S.M.A.R.T check on my SSD with samsung program, nothing wrong there, too.

    I downloaded bluescreenview and checked the DUMP files. It looks like it's related to ntoskrnl.exe (address ntoskrnl.exe+14dca0)

    Every last crashes are related to that "driver". Do you have any leads, guys?

    If you watch a "normal" Windows installation's memory usage, you'll see that:
    1) Usage rarely stays above a couple of %
    2) When usage increases to around 20% (or more), the system starts to have problems
    3) These problems are less evident if you have more RAM

    The ability of the system to handle 7 VM's together at one time is possible, but Windows systems are "dynamic" - with many different things going on at different times. The things that I've pointed out are the most common reasons for system errors under these sort of conditions.

    The crashes are STOP 0x124 errors - they are:
    These error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
    - borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
    - BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
    - overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
    - compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
    - low-level driver problems
    - or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

    You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics
    These errors are errors sent by the CPU to Windows. As such, the faulting module (ntoskrnl.exe) isn't likely to be significant for troubleshooting purposes in this type of error. Please note that we haven't even started with hardware diagnostics yet (I suggest these free tests: Hardware Diagnostics )

    Additionally, ntoskrnl.exe is the kernel (core) of the operating system. As such, if it was giving problems you would be having many more problems other than the occasional BSOD. Typically, when this component is blamed, it means that another driver has usually violated the memory space that's "owned" by ntoskrnl.exe

    You've had 4 memory dumps since the last upload - all of which were STOP 0x124 errors. I've run an analysis on all of them with these results:

    Continue the search for Win8.1 compatible drivers for the Intel Management Engine. You have updated to the 2011 version - but Win8.1 came out in October of 2013. I don't know if the drivers that you installed were certified as Win8.1 compatible or not - that's why I ask you to continue searching for Win8.1 compatible drivers.

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    Hey John, thank you again for your time! I wish I could buy you a beer, seriously. Do you have a paypal donation account? I can't believe you're troubleshooting everyone like that, for free!

    I went on my motherboard manufacturer website and downloaded MEI (and every other drivers available)
    Here is where I've downloaded them: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Sabertooth P67

    I've also updated my BIOS, which had a 2 years old version.
    I've went into my advanced settings in the BIOS and did an optimized performance restore.. (which is considered "default"). I've seen that my RAM had been overclocked by the last owner of the computer. (my RAM now state 1033mhz, and I remember it was 1600mhz before I hit that button). So maybe some other components were overclocked, I don't know... But now everything is stock.
    I also did a Prime95 overnight test. Cooling was excellent (liquid cooled) and no error in 8h30 of testing.

    I've ran 5 VMware sessions this morning, with driver verifier settings activated (followed your link & tutorial). It took about 5 minutes and it crashed! That's even faster than usual! I can't believe every updates that I did at this time make the problem worse It's driving me nuts... VMware is clearly what makes the system get the BSOD! I had 1gb of RAM left with 5 machines and my host running. That should be enough, no? I'll try even fewer machines today to see if the problem still persist.

    Here's my last DUMP, with driver verifier activated in the last crash.

    The dumpfiles consists of 2 bugcheck
    Stop 0x124 The WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred
    stop 0x101"CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT An expected clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor in an
    MP system within the allocated interval. This indicates that the specified
    processor is hung and not processing interrupts."

    The dumpfiles from 15 -3-2014 give a pattern
    time 3.04 stop 0x124 error
    time 4.00 stop 0x101 error
    time 4.52 stop 0x124 error
    time 5.17 stop 0x101 error
    time 5.40 stop 0x124 error

    time 15.30 stop 0x124 error with Driver Verifier

    Analyzing the stop 0x124 with errrec gives Error : Internal timer (Proc 1 Bank 3) Proc 1 = secondary processor


    Most of the time the causes in both bugcheck are drivers or bios as noticed by our BSODspecialist Usasma but sometimes it is hardware faillure like a faulty processor.
    To hopefully exclude hardware faillure .Ensure your temperatures of your processor are within standard and nothing's overheating.
    You can use a program such as Speccy if you'd like to monitor temps - Speccy - System Information - Free Download.

    Hey lifetec, thanks for your feedback.

    As I said, I've ran Prime95 overnight (about 8 hours, 30minutes) and the cooling was great. Nothing alarming there. I checked the temperature with the Asus AI Suite II!

    The CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT is occurring since I upgraded my BIOS and put the default optimization settings... Looks like it was running better with the overclocked components! That's so strange... I wasn't even getting CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT 2 days ago! Now when I'm opening VMware and launching some machines, sometime it crashes right away (machines don't even have the time to boot windows, it freezes and crash the host! It got even worse!)

    You mentioned the Asus AI Suite II.
    According to a BSOD speciallist of answersmicrosoft,com
    It is of course of the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) bugcheck.

    This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).

    Note that this is a hardware only bugcheck, most of the time. The only software that can generally cause this bugcheck are OS to BIOS utilities or software such as Asus' AI Suite that provide a direct bridge from the OS to BIOS to perform on the fly adjustments, monitor voltages and BIOS settings, etc.


    4.
    As I said above, the only usual software conflict that can usually cause *124 bugchecks are OS to BIOS utilities from manufacturer's like Asus' AI Suite. If you have something like this software-wise, remove it ASAP.
