A blue screen with the error message “STOP: 0x000000c4 DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION” appears.

0x000000C4 BSOD

This problem occurs because Driver Verifier incorrectly detects that the driver‘s interrupt service routine (ISR) has corrupted the extended thread context. Driver Verifier captures XSAVE areas before and after a BVR call and compares values to ensure the context is not damaged by the BVR. However, the fields differ in some cases with regard to the characteristics mask. Then the diver’s checker incorrectly reports the change as a violation. That’s why the computer crashes.

Stop Error “0x000000c4” may also appear when starting a virtual machine from Windows Server 2012 ISO to install the system. The error occurs immediately after the installation files are loaded before the actual installation starts.

A supported patch is available from Microsoft. However, this fix is only intended to correct the problem described in this article. Apply this patch only to systems where this particular problem occurs.
