How to install after identifying an "unidentified " driver. Vista Premium.
PC will boot to OS, then I get the nag to install the driver, which doesn't happen as I don't know what the device is to get that driver. If I disable that "undentified" drive rin Device Mgr., then on re-boot I get the BSOD.
If I choose to not see the driver search pop-up, I get the same BSOD.
The error code is: 0x81000101, which I searched but that doesn't tell me which device I need to get a driver for.
So, the process to get a stable boot to OS now if I get a BSOD: is
to choose Last Known Good Config., gets a boot to OS, then that demand to find an unidentified driver (failure procedure).
I think the uunidentified driver may have relationship with Acronis True Image Recovery Process. I created a safe partition to boot from if no boot to OS. That partition is a FAT32; my OS is NTFS.
This is just a theory to my "intermediate knowledge level small" brain.
The issues started after I install a new printer driver, but I deleted that & now have no printer.
I tried Sys. Restore, but that didn't help.
I don't want to perform a clean install.
I will hire a tech. support but the cost is $95.00 per hr.
I'd like to fix this myself.
