If the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) is caused by the iastor.sys, please try to update this driver by removing previous version and downloading the latest one compatible for your computer chipset:
Thanks for the information but that raises another question for me:
Do I just delete iastor.sys ?
and then run the iata_enu?
Sounds too simple...
(I have downloaded the file, created a restore point so I am ready to try this if these
directions are this simple)
If you're having a "7B" BSOD then it probably has to do with the "bitness" of the driver. There's a quirky behavior with Intel storage drivers. The .inf files are architecture non-specific, but the .sys files are obviously very different. This means, if the OS is x86 and it sees the x64 driver first, it will accept the driver, but the .sys file will cause the boot device to be inaccessible.
I suggest you manually filter the driver package down to the specific OS and bitness that you need. Do this with Universal Extractor.
The BugCheck code is a '7e'.
I'm would like to hear more about the process of deleting the existing iastor.sys before I
run the iata_enu.
Ah, that's "system thread exception not handled" ... do you happen to have the first two arguments from the stop? It might be possible to troubleshoot farther.
Here is the info from my event log, or are you looking for info from the dump file? if so, you
need to be really specific for me...

I"ve been chasing this with various helpful people for over a week now. It occurs
anytime, sometimes 3x day, other times, only 1x 18 hours. Nothing specific I
can tell is happening at the same time.
