Windows 7: Boot Trace (from slow boot)

Boot Trace (from slow boot)

Hi. I am posting here as requested from this link:

Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace

As cluberti said, the trace may not show useful data as it came after a BSOD - I have not been able to get a startup trace without error messages coming up at the end: I can avoid BSODs by removing the +DRIVERS part of the string, but I still cannot end up with a proper boot trace for some reason (please see the above thread for details of the error message I get).

This trace is the one gathered after a BSOD. I have another trace which measures 3.5GBs in size - no idea why so large, I guess part of the error ('can't stop trace'). Can't upload it anyway. The trace I do have is here:

https://***************/files/3942784478/Trace.zip

If anyone can comment I'd be grateful. If the trace is no good for analysis purposes, any further ideas how to get a trace without the constant errors? I have tried at least 10 times now...

Many thanks,

Martin

Martin, did you PM Cluberti a link to this post? He is extremely busy now with MS projects but will surely get to it asap. I wish I could interpret the trace for you but it is beyond my abilities.

Hi. Thanks for that - yes, I have PM'd him. Don't want to hassle him - will wait a week or so before I try again. Am now in the UK for a month, and the problem PC is back in Thailand, where I work, so there's no rush...

Two questions - one, have you disabled UAC? Second, are you logged on as a user who is an administrator, or with the actual local Administrator account?

Hi.. Yes, I do have UAC disabled, but I have had that advice before and running the trace with UAC set as recommended made no difference, I get the same error message whatever setting UAC is at.

And yes, my user account shows as Administrator in Control Panel/Users..

Odd, isn't it? (What is the missing 'user-mode logger'?). Hope you can advise further even so. Maybe I can get a boot trace another way?

Thanks again,

Martin

Hmm - I am curious. What happens if you just run the following command - does this work at all?
Code:
xbootmgr -trace Boot -traceFlags BASE -resultPath C:\Boot_Trace
