BSOD on boot. Various stop codes and errors.


Nov 8, 2016
Hi! This is the first problem i've never been able to solve with a few google searches and so my first forum post (Sorry if this is in the wrong place)!
Since updating to Win10 I've had loads of minor issues, however this time seems a bit more serious. I'm unable to boot into windows.

My PC encounters various errors and stop codes when it boots (0xc0000001, 0xc0000098, CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED, MEMORY MANAGMENT), tries to gather information and restart. It will cycle this a couple of times before going to the recovery screen.

I've tried various things to fix this:
-System restore gives the stop code BAD POOL CALLER.
-System repair just goes in circles.-I've tried a windows 10 repair USB
-SFC /SCANNOW results in windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation. -I've checked DISKPART to make sure I'm booting from the right place.
-I have tried bootrec /fixmbr, rebuildbcd, fixboot etc.

None of these have done anything.
Any advice at this point is welcome, thank you!


try running chkdsk C: /f in command prompt
sfc generally doesn't work from advanced startup menu
1st 3 errors all boot errors, critical process died could be either csrss or winlogin, either way win 10 going nowhere as one is user services and other is your login.
Memory management could be ram or drivers, so try running this on ram sticks: (its bootable usb, doesn't need windows)
if memtest comes up with 0 errors, its not the ram...

you probably best doing a clean install. If there is anything on PC you want to save, try

On another PC, download the Windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a win 10 installer on USB
