  • Simulate Stop Error (BSOD)

    I know the CrashOnCtrlScroll parameter in the registry to force a blue screen with pressing the CTRL and SCROLL LOCK key.

    However, there was another way to change a ACPI key in "Current Control Set" somewhere which gives a bluescreen upon reboot.

    You'd have to choose the best known configuration in order to boot up the server again.

    We would like to use this hack to check test something (how long certain server takes to reboot after a BSOD etc.) so the "key pressing" method isn't quite enough.

    I just cannot find it anymore

    (I know Daniel knows which one :P )

    Yes I do.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ACPI]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    Returning it to 0 fixes the BSOD.
