Windows 7: How to Stop Reboot on BSOD?

How to Stop Reboot on BSOD?

When I set my Onboard SATA Ctrl Mode to AHCI (from IDE) I get a BSOD that I can't see because the system immediately reboots.
How can I get it to hold on the BSOD error?

Why do you need to? if its bsod'ing you can go into c:\windows\minidump and look for a *.dmp file. thats the log file of what happened. zip it and up load it so we can analyse it for ya.

Let us know if you need help with either zipping or uploading

edit: if its not in minidump search for *.dmp

you could try:

control panel >> system and security >> system >> advanced system settings >> startup and recovery settings >> untick 'auto restart' box

(although there's probably a quicker way to get there )

If you press f8 during startup there is menu there that has it too I think

I had the same problem with mine a while back I had to change my Bios settings back to IDE

This is a known issue on some boards / BIOSs. If you don't have the "SATA/RAID" drivers installed, you will get a BSOD if you try to switch. I will post the workaround if I get time but I would go in this direction.

This may help

Thanks guys. I solved the BSOD restart with
"Change the value data in the AutoReboot value to 0 (zero), instead of 1, in the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CrashControl".

The AHCI thing is weird though. My HDDs are AHCI enabled in BIOS and that's OK, but when I change 'Onboard SATA Ctrl Mode' to AHCI (from IDE) I get a BSOD. I thikn this affects the CD/DVD drives only - I might be wrong on that!

I've attached a BIOS screenshot. (My settings also have SATA mode set to Native - not as per image.)

Thanks.
I got the BSOD reboot issue working, but haven't got the 'why does Windows 7 BSOD with it set to IDE' issue resolved.
