  • From the dumps it looks like your crash was caused by nvstor.sys - there's a few reports of that from a Google search.

    Check this thread to see if it helps, specifically this answer:

    NVidia nForce SATA controller driver (nvstor.sys or nvraid.sys) can be replaced by Standard Dual-channel IDE controller driver (atapi.sys) included in Windows. This improves stability a bit, and furthermore, allows TRIM for SSD disks. But beware - if you do this change you cannot use nForce RAID anymore, use need to replace it by Storage Spaces technology, which is part of every Windows 10. However, I think that Storage Spaces mirror set isn't bootable as NVRaid mirror was.

    You can replace the nForce driver through Device Manager.
