        x86 Processors

            If the processor has ONLY MCE feature available (For example Intel

            Pentium), the parameters are:

            1 - Low  32 bits of P5_MC_TYPE MSR

            2 - Address of MCA_EXCEPTION structure

            3 - High 32 bits of P5_MC_ADDR MSR

            4 - Low  32 bits of P5_MC_ADDR MSR

            If the processor also has MCA feature available (For example Intel

            Pentium Pro), the parameters are:

            1 - Bank number

            2 - Address of MCA_EXCEPTION structure

            3 - High 32 bits of MCi_STATUS MSR for the MCA bank that had the error

            4 - Low  32 bits of MCi_STATUS MSR for the MCA bank that had the error

        IA64 Processors

            1 - Bugcheck Type

                1 - MCA_ASSERT

                2 - MCA_GET_STATEINFO

                    SAL returned an error for SAL_GET_STATEINFO while processing MCA.

                3 - MCA_CLEAR_STATEINFO

                    SAL returned an error for SAL_CLEAR_STATEINFO while processing MCA.

                4 - MCA_FATAL

                    FW reported a fatal MCA.

                5 - MCA_NONFATAL

                    SAL reported a recoverable MCA and we don't support currently

                    support recovery or SAL generated an MCA and then couldn't

                    produce an error record.

                0xB - INIT_ASSERT

                0xC - INIT_GET_STATEINFO

                      SAL returned an error for SAL_GET_STATEINFO while processing INIT event.

    Debugging Details:



       NOTE:  This is a hardware error.  This error was reported by the CPU

       via Interrupt 18.  This analysis will provide more information about

       the specific error.  Please contact the manufacturer for additional

       information about this error and troubleshooting assistance.


       This error is documented in the following publication:

    VAL   - MCi_STATUS register is valid

            Indicates that the information contained within the IA32_MCi_STATUS

            register is valid.  When this flag is set, the processor follows the

            rules given for the OVER flag in the IA32_MCi_STATUS register when

            overwriting previously valid entries.  The processor sets the VAL

            flag and software is responsible for clearing it.


    OVER  - Error Overflow

            Indicates that a machine check error occurred while the results of a

            previous error were still in the error-reporting register bank (that

            is, the VAL bit was already set in the IA32_MCi_STATUS register).

            the processor sets the OVER flag and software is responsible for

            clearing it.  Enabled errors are written over disabled errors, and

            uncorrected errors are written over corrected errors.  Uncorrected

            errors are not written over previous valid uncorrected errors.


    UC    - Error Uncorrected

            Indicates that the processor did not or was not able to correct the

            error condition.  When clear, this flag indicates that the processor

            was able to correct the error condition.


    EN    - Error Enabled

            Indicates that the error was enabled by the associated EEj bit of the

            IA32_MCi_CTL register.


    PCC   - Processor Context Corrupt

            Indicates that the state of the processor might have been corrupted

            by the error condition detected and that reliable restarting of the

            processor may not be possible.


    BUSCONNERR - Bus and Interconnect Error   BUS{LL}_{PP}_{RRRR}_{II}_{T}_err

            These errors match the format 0000 1PPT RRRR IILL




       Concatenated Error Code:




       This error code can be reported back to the manufacturer.

       They may be able to provide additional information based upon

       this error.  All questions regarding STOP 0x9C should be

       directed to the hardware manufacturer.
