I have a new Dell T110 server with a new load of Server 2008 R2 that is restarting after blue screens a few times a day. Box has 1 quad core Xeon, and 12 GB RAM in it.
Bugcheck info :
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.272.7
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
It's an IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL, I believe.
Reading elsewhere on EE about similar problems with other Dell servers, I have tried to flash the BIOS with the relevant program from Dell. The BIOS update program dies and rolls back, so no joy. "The instruction at 0x1002ed05 referenced memory at 0x1002ed05. The memory could not be read."
I've run hardware diagnostics from the Dell system partition, including the long version of the memory test. No errors found. I had this box running ESXi 4.0 at first, with no problems, but it was underpowered and i moved that to another machine. I tried disabling virtualization support in the BIOS (it was off by default) and disabling 'C states' under the processor settings.
