    Windows 8 RP crashes when entering the password upon resume from sleep


    I'm running Windows 8 8400 on a Lenovo s205

    The origin of the issue:
    I messed up a little my MBR by removing the dual-boot system incorrectly, and had to repair it using a USB drive with Windows 8(the automatic repair did the trick). Immediately after the repair, the problem started.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Close the lid,
    2. Open the lid,
    3. Wait for the logon screen to appear,
    4. Enter the correct password.

    What happens:
    Laptop reboots by itself.
    After the reboot, I'm able to enter the password and log in successfully.

    How reproducible:
    5/5

    Additional details:
    *After the repair, Windows 8 SLIC(I mean the spinning dots on resume) was replaced by the old progress bar with the word "Resuming".
    *No dumps get generated
    *The settings upon closing the lid are: "Hibernate", whether on battery or using charger.
    *Event viewer just contains an error that the last shutdown was incorrect.

    Things that I haven't tried:
    1. Running sfc /scannow (already done after starting topic; did not find anything)
    2. Running a full check disk
    3. Trying the safe mode
    4. Trying the clean boot

    I'm not that bothered by this problem, and I don't really want to reinstall Windows - just curious what it might be.

    Looks like this was fixed by moving the pagefile to a separate partition. No reboot in 4 resumes, and before - this was 100% reproducible.

    Nope, it crashed again.

    Upgrade to W8 Pro with wiping all HDDs solved the problem Might be a little overkill, but I didn't actually need any stuff from this laptop
