Lots of Bugs in WDP 64 bit!

    Question


  • My PC:
    Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P, Socket-AM3. Latest bios: F8. (have installed ALL previous too.)
    Corsair XMS3 DHX DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9 1.8v
    AMD Phenom II X4 Quad core @ 3 Ghz.
    Gainward Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3
    Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB & Western Digital Caviar® GreenPower 2x 640GB
    Chieftec Nitro Series BPS-750C 750W PSU

    See attached photo, also iwe one question: When WDP is installing at PnP, is all devices working on 100% power on enumeration/detection? like CPU, GPU, MEM & PSU?
    If so there could be overheating problems, when i installed the OS in the first place.

    Hope you DEV's fix these bugs for the NeXT beta!

    Sincerly, Nils. (MCP)

  • hi there,

    the catastrophic reliability index seems to me hardware related...i cannot think of any application/configuration causing so much windows/Application failures...maybe a stupid question, but since you mention overheating, are you sure your CPU is correctly installed/cooled? is the same setup stable with a clean install? maybe give it a try on Win7 would clarify the hardware reliability.

    i'm running Win8 on 4 different configs (from coreDuo to corei7) with absolutely nothing comparable...

    hope you can fix this to enjoy this build and forecoming ones.

     

    Keep us posted.

    Hi Pierre, im pretty sure its my GPU card, because my CPU, MEM and Audio Components are working great. (stress tested cpu and mem)

    But my 650W PSU went dead just recently, and i got a New 750W free of charge, luckily i dont think my Mainboard is damaged in any way.

    So im gonna buy a brand New GPU card (again!) when beta1 is out, hopefully beta1 is less buggy than win95/winME :)

     

    Keep up with the good work MS!

    I'we maually enabled: auto check for s & send a data if needed on the action center, sadly only the newest BSOD have been sent to MS, because iwe used Disk Cleanup. Iwe not installed any tweak apps, because WDP doesnt boot to login, and safe mode or rescue center doesnt work properly (sys restore service doesnt start)

    So iwe havent done any tweaking of the OS.

    I really hope you guys fix a bunch of bugs before NeXT beta and especially RTM! i have no peripheral Devices like Cameras, Printers and so on. (only mouse/kb.)
