    IRST frequent BSOD on Windows 7


      Recently upgraded my machine to the following specs:


      • Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H Motherboard (Rev 1.0)
      • Intel i7-4770k CPU
      • Crucial Ballistix Sport 4x4GB DDR3, PC3-12800
      • Two Western Digital 1TB SATA drives
      • Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit


      I set the two hard drives up as a RAID 1 in the BIOS using the on-board Intel hardware RAID controller.  It's caused me nothing but a slew of blue screen errors that run the gamut:


      • BAD_POOL_CALLER - 0x000000c2
      • IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - 0x0000000A


      I've been dealing with this for 3 days now and have followed all of the standard troubleshooting techniques.  All system drivers are updated and running the latest versions.  Intel Rapid Storage Technology is at v12.5.0.1066.  BIOS is at v5.  I removed all the old, unused system drivers, display drivers, storage drivers, etc.  Although I had been using these RAM chips in another machine with no problems, I still ran MemTest86+ and encountered no errors.  I ran Windows Verifier on all active drivers.


      Running WinDbg on my latest MEMORY.DMP file yields the following results:


      STACK_COMMAND:  kb




      fffff880`0142b508 4883c420        add     rsp,20h




      SYMBOL_NAME:  iaStorA+1b508


      FOLLOWUP_NAME:  MachineOwner


      IMAGE_NAME:  iaStorA.sys






      All signs are pointing to this being a problem with the Intel RST drivers.  Any help would be appreciated.
