Hyper-V + NVIDIA = BSOD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a NVIDIA GT 650M Graphics Card on my notebook and running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. When I enable the Hyper-V Role, the system reboots with a Blue Screen. The error from the event log is:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007e (0xffffffffc0000096, 0xfffff88006ac43cc, 0xfffff880025d3778, 0xfffff880025d2fd0). 

    I have:

    • all the latest Windows Update.
    • tried the drivers from Dell (causes SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, (The bugcheck was: 0x0000003b (0x00000000c0000096, 0xfffff88004207e41, 0xfffff880067718f0, 0x0000000000000000).) 
    • tried the latest drivers from NVIDIA
    • tried the beta drivers from NVIDIA
    • tried the KB2551127 hotfix
    • re-installed everything again

    and still result in blue screen.

    Removing the Hyper-V role will cause the system to boot normally without errors.

    There are no options in the BIOS to set for Caching and Shadowing since this is a consumer notebook, the BIOS is pretty much basic.

    I thought the Hyper-V with high-end Graphics Card BSOD-ing issue was already solved in SP1, so I just wanted to post this just in case if something has slipped through.

    Thanx

    Hugs,
    Serena

  • Try switching to the VGA driver and then enabling Hyper-V, that should
    work if it's like the high end video card problem.

  • What order did you install the Hyper-V role and the nVidia drivers?  I had this same problem.  The only way to fix at the point you are now is a complete reinstall and then reinstall the Hyper-V role first and then update the video card drivers.

  • Hi smjain,

    I have tried both installing Hyper-V first then update the NVIDIA drivers and install drivers first then enable Hyper-V role. Both result in blue screen :(

  • Hi,

    Please try Bob’s suggestion to use native VGA driver.

  • Hi Bob,

    Yes, I'm running on the Standard VGA Driver at the moment and hoping for the issue of the graphics card to be solved. :) I really hope the graphics card issue can be solved since Hyper-V is cool and soon, event client Windows can use it - Which is awesome! :)

  • I had an HP laptop that I had to run the VGA driver -- it's not very
    fast, but it let me run Hyper-V on that laptop.  (I didn't particularly
    like that laptop, it was a sale model and worth every penny of the sale
    price, but no more...)

    Did you do a fresh install of Windows, enable the Hyper-V role and then install the video drivers? Just removing the role and video drivers won't work.  It has to be a fresh install.
