Hello everyone,

I have an Openstack Icehouse setup all working fine and dandy, but I need to put some Windows images in our setup.

I followed the guide here at but as the guide is a year old I used the virtio-win-0.1-81.iso as it was the latest in the stable repository. Anyway the image was created fine but when I boot i get the BSOD then a status 0xc0000001 error.

Does anybody have any experience using virtio-win-0.1-81.iso tools or do they have a version they know works? I am running on KVM so there should be any QEMU issue here.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello, There might be the problem of the virtio drivers not getting installed. We are currently working on it, in order to proper detect the underlying hypervisor. A quick solution for this is to manually install the virtio drivers. Hope it works. I'll come back with a bugfix on this.

We've added a fix for this issue. Can you retry the image generation? Thanks.

I understand that you're encountering BSOD 0xc0000001 Error.

Please do clean the Windows Store cache contents and check whether the problem still persists. The steps to clean the Windows Store cache contents are given below:

  1. Press Windows Key + X simultaneously.
  2. Select Search option.
  3. Type “WSReset.exe” in the Search Box, click Apps icon.
  4. WSReset.exe will be displayed in the search results. Right click that, and then click the “Run as administrator” icon at the bottom of the Start Screen.

Now check if there are conflicts with any of the existing device(s) that cause BSOD 0xc0000001 error. Use the Reginout to check for issues with the system file registration information. That will be really helpful. If the problem still persists, follow the other steps outlined below:

  1. Press Windows Key + X simultaneously.
  2. Select Device Manager.
  3. Click the View menu, and check-up the sub menu named “Show hidden devices”.
  4. Expand the root level entry, i.e. your computer’s name.
  5. Do you see any hardware devices with a yellow color exclamation mark? These are the malfunctioning devices that have to be either updated to the latest versions or uninstalled, as the case may be.
  6. To update a device driver, right click the device name and select “Update driver software”. To remove a device driver, right click the device name and select “Uninstall” option.
  7. When you’re done, please restart your computer for the changes to take effects.

I hope this answer helps.

Thanks & Regards, Alexander Thomas
