Hi, i have a W7 laptop that crashes after applying windows updates. On reboot it gets to 30% and then restarts and crashes. I have to then select repair then it all works again. I have tried repairing the install but it fails as soon as you apply windows updates again. it is on a MACBook Air all latest firmware updates etc. I am using bootcamp to get into windows and it has been fine until about 7/8 days ago.

Many thnkas

Upload the .dmp files located in windows folder. It should end with .dmp files. Also please upload

%SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log

I dont know why the debugging is taking a long time to show the results. I then used a non microsoft tool to find out the crash results which point to ntkrnlpa.exe.

What i think is first update your graphics driver. Download the latest driver  from manufacturer website. Also check control panel-windows update- click update history and check which update is failing.

Till that time it will debug the dump files.

post the model number and manufacturer name of graphics card.

You can download cpuz to find out the make of the graphics card. I think updating graphics driver should resolve your issue.

Okay i think we have cracked the problem.

The problem is caused by a driver called applemtp.sys.  Checked online about this file and found a lot of users having the same problem.

Go to the Boot Camp control panel and click on the Trackpad tab and unchek Two Fingers Secondary Click. This disables the right click two fingers gesture but the BSOD is gone.



Resolution : Install the latest driver for Apple Multitouch Mouseand use a Bluetooth Mouse

Contact mac they should have a resolution . If first level is not able to help then ask for tier2 mac support. Microsoft will not be able to help you on this issue. Can deleting old windows and then uninstall bootcamp. Install the latest bootcamp and then install windows 7. These steps should fix your problem.
