bsod

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.

CONFIG_LIST_FAILED Parameters

The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

ParameterDescription

1

1

2

The NT status code that led the Windows operating system to assume that it failed to load the hive

3

The index of the hive in the hive list

4

A pointer to a UNICODE_STRING structure that contains the file name of the hive

 

Cause

The registry hive that cannot be linked might be SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE, or DEFAULT. The hive is valid, because it was loaded successfully.

Examine Parameter 2 to see why the hive could not be linked in the registry tree. One common cause of this error is that the Windows operating system is out of disk space on the system drive. (In this situation, this parameter is 0xC000017D, STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE.) Another common problem is that an attempt to allocate pool has failed. (In this situation, Parameter 2 is 0xC000009A, STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES.) You must investigate other status codes.
