Server 2012 Event ID: 41 Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power


  • Hello

    I looked this article in forum, but didn't find anything. 

    This happened after I turned off the VM computer when it was applying windows updates. 

    Now there is no dump, no blue screen, no restart. But this error is in the event log everytime.

    Log Name:      System

    Date:          7/27/2013 1:39:44 AM
    Event ID:      41
    Task Category: (63)
    Level:         Critical
    Keywords:      (2)
    User:          SYSTEM
    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

  • For a VM, you can restore it to an earlier point snapshot if available. If this event ID persists, I’d suggest perform a repair install of this VM.
