NDIS.sys BSOD (they don't play well together) => Fixed in SVN/2.1.4

Description

If some parts of this post seem redundant, it's because it is being cross posted to all applicable support sites.

I did up a customised installation DVD of Win XP Pro x64 for my system, but found that it resulted in a BSOD with NDIS.sys being the culprit. Specifically it would blue screen the instant a Ethernet cable was plugged in OR if the Ethernet cable was plugged in when the computer was started up, then it would BSOD when one logged into any account (when network connections are activated).

After a fair amount of removing programs I found that the following 4 programs are incompatible, but only if all 4 are installed. If there are only 3 installed then one does not cop the BSOD.

SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD) layer v1.56 x64 (released 11 Mar 08)

Microsoft Virtual PC sp1 x64 (released 15 May 2008)

VirtualBox-2.1.0-41146-Win_amd64.msi (17 Dec 08)

.

Comodo Firewall

tested both the current Comodo Internet Security 3.5.57173.439 (3 Dec 2008)

 http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_firewall.html

and older but stable Comomdo Firewall Pro 3.0.25.378 (30th May 2008)

 http://download.comodo.com/cfp/download/setups/CFP_Setup_3.0.25.378_XP_Vista_x64.exe

.

The problem does not exist with the older 2.0.6 version of VirtualBox (21 Nov 2008).

I can see how Comodo Firewall, VirtualPC and VirtualBox could interact badly as they will all interact with the network stack, but I don't understand why the SPTD driver should make a difference, being as it is a CD-ROM emulator.

Also (and very strangely) she will BSOD in VMware server 1.0.8 and VirtualBox 2.0.4 and it did so on my desktop:

GA-EP45-DS3R Mobo with PCI-E Realtek RTL8168/8111 Gigabit Ethernet NICs

but not on my laptop:

Acer Aspire 5024WLMi with PCI Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC, using CFP 3.0.25.378

The DVD was created using nLite with SPTD added via SVCPACK at T-13 and the rest executed from a batch file at RunOnce, see this post for full details:

Replying to Kurt_Aust:

We've made some fixes to the NetFlt driver that should hopefuly solve the problem you're seeing. Please send me a mail at Mikhail dot Sennikovsky at sun dot com if you are willing to test it. I'll then send you a link to a test version containing a fix.

In my best Marvin impersonation: "Where's the Ka-Boom? There was supposed to be a Earth shattering Ka-Boom!". Or in plain English, that seems to have fixed it, at least within VMware server.

I'll try installing it on my main rig on the weekend, but I have to back up my system and update the firmware on my hard drives first (I have the dodgy 1TB Seagate drives and don't want to risk any more reboots then absolutely necessary until then).

Barring further problems, this case can be considered closed.

  • Summary changed from NDIS.sys BSOD (they don't play well together) to NDIS.sys BSOD (they don't play well together) => Fixed in SVN

OK, I'll mark is as fixed. Please let me know if you see this issue on some other configuration

Tested on my main (physical) rig, no BSOD problems encountered.
