Hi All,

My server is currently blue screening, in a continuous loop. The blue screen error is going by so fast, that I can't even video record it, and play back to see the error. I don't see a mini dump file in my c:\windows\minidump folder. I tried Knoppix 6.4 Live CD for the first time, and I can see my files, but I believe the mini dump file is being stored in the Document and setting\local\temp folder. There are to many files for me to search individually, so I wanted to know ...

1. How do I do a search for a file on my c: drive, which is believe is /dev/sgh1 in Knoppix? I'm assuming I have to use the find command, but not sure how to search from file manger in the Knoppix Gui? I don't see an option in knoppix file manger to search for files. When I go to a shell prompt, it doesn't take me to the mounted drive /dev/sgh1, so I can do a find search.

2. What other tools are good to help diagnose windows boot up/hardware/memory issues? I just found out about BartPE, not sure if there tool products that maybe better.

Thanks!
