Good ideas mate, it would be more help here than buried in the tutorial section, it is that good though.


Thanks.

Ok, I got it installed. For the symbol path I copied what you had in the tutorial.

c) Set the path to be the following:
SRV*C:\SymCache*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

The splats are included correct? Or do I need to remove them?

There must be more to setting this up. For instance source file path, Image file path, etc.

What I want to accomplish here is when my machine goes into S3 (unattended) it will on its own try to reboot. It then goes into a loop and windows cannot boot. When I set down to the monitor it is hung at "delete Hib file and reboot win" but it still cannnot boot (continues to loop) Then I have discovered that if I enter the bios and do an F10, ok, (make no changes) it will reboot into windows.

All of that is included, except the colouring

Literally, S...R...V... asterisk... C... colon... back_slash... SymCache... asterisk... H... T... T... P... colon... forward_slash... forward_slash...m... s... .... and so on.

Unless you work for MS, I presume you don't have access to Windows source code. Therefore, the source path is irrelevant. Image file path is only used for relatively advanced things - not what we're dealing with here.

The procedures I've described here are used for analysis of "minidumps", such as those created by Windows during BSODs. (They're stored in \Windows\minidump). I get the feeling that you're describing a reboot loop which happens without BSODs ("bugchecks" in official terminology). If that's the case, this stuff won't help you directly, mostly because there's no minidump for the debugger to analyse, and you may wish to start a thread describing the entire situation so that your issue gets wide attention.

Thank you very much JC!

I certainly wouldn't want all BSODs to go away though - people like you and I enjoy the troubleshooting way too much

Intel and Microsoft have been called many things over the years. "Goodness" is probably a first

I must say, excellent work with the post about registers! I had no idea what they meant before. I'll definitely be looking into reading that, right after I learn how to start WinDbg

Seriously, thanks for your time.

Was reading this earlier today. I have a feeling what Windows does "behind the scenes" will become even more interesting to me once I start to understand it better.

H2SO4, are you self taught or do you have done formal studies?
