What is the file location of the “blue screen of death”? [closed]

Posted on


I’ve always pondered this question but could never find an answer. One of my thoughts was that it was part of the BIOS, but that gets stopped once the kernel can support the system. Than I thought maybe it was part of the Windows kernel, but how can that be if the kernel has crashed? Any thoughts?


BSOD handling code is in ntoskrnl.exe

Frome Windows 7 IT Forum theme BSOD error log location:

Check in %systemroot%minidumps like c:windowsminidumps

See also Startup and Recovery window, “Small dump directory” edit box.
