After a fresh windows 10 install, I am reliably seeing a blue screen during the driver bundle installation. The blue screen has happened on 3x different installs, and generally happens during or slightly after the graphics driver installation. After seeing the blue screen and rebooting the laptop, the machine will again blue screen within a minute of hitting the login window, leaving the computer in a basically unusable state.
The blue screen errors vary, and i’ve seen at least the following ones pop up:
Over three different clean windows installs, I’ve tried the following:
- Reinstalling the bios 3.06 (on a fresh windows install before installing the drivers)
- Tried with both Framework_Laptop_driver_bundle_2021_10_29.exe and Framework_Laptop_driver_bundle_2021_08_31.exe
- Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic - no errors.
- Ran memtest86 diagnostic - no errors
On a clean windows intall before installing the driver pack, the system seems generally stable, and i haven’t seen any blue screens. But, i havent used it for an extended period, since there’s only so much you can do without wifi.
