Random BSOD,CRITICAL OBJECT TERMINATION ERROR0f4, hal.dll ntoskrnl.exe

I've been getting random BSODs for awhile now, it happens randomly once every couple of days, either when I start my computer or when i'm just using it for daily uses. All my drivers should be all up to date as windows didn't detect anything when I tried to check for updates

BugCheck F4, {3, fffffa8012c90b30, fffffa8012c90e10, fffff8000337f460}

Probably caused by : wininit.exe

A stop F4 is a storage device related bugcheck, somehow it is not working properly.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Also, we need to see some more information. Please upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

You appear not to have activated the OS yet - is there any reason for this?

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.
