The recent spin on the old classic. There was an operating system called Vista, which you may not have heard of because everyone hated it and we all pretended it didn’t happen. Microsoft went back to the lab, cleaned Vista up, made a point revision bringing Windows up to version 6.1… which they of course named Windows 7. Windows 7 shares a lot of underlying code with Vista, and the BSOD is no exception.
We’re going with the super verbose IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, specifically a D1 for those in the know. It’s a large print on the shirt, which the kids are into these days.
Many thanks to Mark Russinovich for the screenshot and continued BSOD help.
