Hi, Greatdrift.

Result of your dump file analyzing is:
The requested page of kernel data could not be read in. Typically caused by
a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see
If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
Arg1: fffff6fb41ffbec0, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: ffffffffc0000185, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: 00000001cf0f9884, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: fffff683ff7d8300, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

DISK_HARDWARE_ERROR: There was error with disk hardware

FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x7a_c0000185_nt!_??_::FNODOBFM::_string_+3144a

Your system has Western Digital SCSI Arcitecture Model (SAM) WDM driver wdcsam64.sys (Wed Apr 16 11:39:08 2008 (4805BB2C)) driver that has know BSOD issues in Windows.

First, try to update this driver to the last version

I believe I might have downloaded and updated the driver but is there any way to check the driver / firmware version?

This drivers description doesn't sound very well, all SPTD drivers I've seen are known for causing BSODs regardless of the version.
From where did you download a new version?
If you go in Windows Explorer to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ and check the properties of wdcsam64.sys you can see if it is updated or not.
wdc_sam	WD SCSI Pass Thru driver  c:\windows\system32\drivers\wdcsam64.sys
@kostiau, that is the data of the dump, but what is the result according to you? Only copy/pasting the data isn't a result.

I went to this link: Driver Reference Table - wdcsam64.sys

I couldn't use the first link provided because my product is not in the list, so I went to the second link and downloaded SES driver and SmartWare.

At windows/system32/drivers,

The current version of WD SCSI Architecture Model (SAM) Driver is and last date modified is 4/29/2015.

Good, if any BSOD occurs again let us know (with a new zip) and we'll go from there :)
