VMware causing BSOD 4 Months ago Karma: 9
BSOD = blue screen of death

So I just built my new PC with very little installed so I don't see what (if anything) is causing a conflict. My host machine is running win10.

I follow the instructions provided in the help file exactly but when I launch the VM the PC instantly goes blue screen. I disabled all the Windows Defender stuff and then it allowed the VM to start to launch before getting "C:\\user\....\vm01.vmdk" has internal consistency errors. It then asks if "Do you wish to repair the disk and continue?"

Upon clicking YES I get an instant BSOD, and upon clicking NO I get "the specified virtual disk needs repair" and it also says "module disk power on failed. Failed to start the virtual machine". I don't get a BSOD then but it takes me back to "power on this virual machine" and "edit virtual machine settings" options.

I have installed nothing other than EVE, Steam, a few steam games, VMWare workstation (obviously), evepilot, chrome, and my video card drivers. I have no antivirus or anything that should be interfering (aside from windows built in antivirus where I disabled everything I could).

EDIT: I already went into BIOS and already turned on the virtualization option so I don't think this is the issue. Does the bot still work on win7 tiny? I found an old iso on an external HD.

EVE will not work on 32 bit windows. About BSOD it is a driver/hardware issue probably. Yoou should create dump file, then use something like whocrashed to figure out what is the source of a problem

Yea I'm stupid. It didn't even occur to me to update drivers other than that of my video cards. If that doesn't work I'll give that other stuff a shot. Thanks for the help!

Took way longer than expected to get the BSOD issue resolved and had to do a few things. I bought a vmware key for version 16 and I downloaded a clean win7 iso (no updates or anything) and things seemed to resolve itself. I now just have two questions.

1: Do I need to use a proxy if I use a VPN in the VM? I know very little where proxies are involved. If so, do I need to run a VPN on the host machine?

2: Do I need to download any specific updates to make the bot run? I only installed update KB4474419 to get VM tools installed properly.

1) You should run vpn inside virtual machine. Also don't forget to tune ip guard (in menu->tools) so if vpn fails and reveal your host IP, bot will not start eve.

2) Use windows from microsoft. I think it has latest updates

Thanks much Slav, having to relearn lots of stuff since I haven't used a PC much in the last 5 years. I'll give that OS a shot.
