Windows 7: BSOD When Booting After Installing Xbox 360 Wired Controller Drivers

BSOD When Booting After Installing Xbox 360 Wired Controller Drivers

Hello.

I am having a ridiculously hard time figuring out how to fix this BSOD i've been getting this past week.

I keep getting BSOD "PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED" every single time I restart upon installing the drivers for my Xbox 360 Wired Controller.

I then try the System Restore and it does not work, so then I roll back to a previous System Restore point. I've had to do this about 10+ different times now, because once that driver is installed, it will not let me past the "Starting Windows" animation. Even Safe Mode BSODs!

I've tried a few different install/uninstall things w/ the Drivers for the Controller, but with no luck.

I also used the BlueScreenView program, and idk if it's any help, but here's the output it gave me:

Run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Make sure all Windows updates are installed including the latest Service Pack.

Attached is my results after using the command to get sfcdetails.txt on my Desktop.

No matter how many times i've restarted or tried the program over and over again in a row, it continues to say there are files that it can't fix. Though, unless i'm missing something, that text file shows no errors?

I received no errors after 6 passes... I've never had any RAM trouble, and i'm fairly positive that has nothing to do with my BSOD I am receiving.

I done this once before and I don't recall anything happening, but that's probably because the Xbox 360 Controller Driver wasn't installed. I'm not exactly sure what I should do, due to that fact that I already get a BSOD every time after installing the Controller's Drivers w/o even using Driver Verifier.

Yup, I have them all, including SP1.

Run a Repair Install. It should fix your current version and Windows 7 but preserve your data, programs, user accounts etc.

If the BSOD's continue after the repair install, I would still recommend enabling verifier.

I tried the Repair Install to no avail (even after uninstalling SP1).

So, I just decided to say screw it and re-installed. And, what do ya' know? The controller and my OS works perfectly fine again... So strange.

Thanks for your help, though, JaidynM!
