BSOD on cold boot
Hi all,

yesterday I started having problems on cold windows 8 64bit boot. When windows starts loading I got BSOD, after restart all went normally, today the same happened. I am quite sure it is software related. Anyway the BSOD showed bad pool caller error.
Event viewer: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c2 (0x0000000000000007, 0x000000000000119e, 0x0000000004440009, 0xfffffa80067d79d0)

Event viewer also shows this: Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC0000001. I believe this preceeded the bsod.
Minidump files from both days attached.

my pc scec:
Windows 8 64 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2,66ghz
4gb ram
GPU Ati HD 5770
MB Asus P5K

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

The Asus P5 series of boards had memory issues with early installations of Win7. I dunno if this applies to Win8, but I'd suggest trying to set your memory timings/settings/voltages according to the RAM manufacturer's specifications (NOT using the Auto setting in the BIOS).

NTStatus of 0xc0000001 is "Operation failed" (which we know already!)

Both BSOD's are listed as probably being caused by HssDrv.sys - a component of HotSpotShield
HotSpotShield is known to cause issues on some Win7 systems, so it's reasonable to assume that it's causing similar issues on Win8. To add to this, your HotSpotShield drivers date from 2009 and may not even be compatible with Win7.

To test this, please uninstall HotSpotShield and see if the BSOD's stop.

Another likely cause of the BSOD's is the 2005 version of the ASACPI.sys (Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver). Please update to the latest version available from your motherboard's driver download page at Asus' website. Also, please note that Asus doesn't support Win7 or Win8 for this mobo, so finding compatible drivers will be difficult for you.

Download from here (select Vista 64 bit as the OS): http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int.../P5K/#download
In this case, DO NOT use the driver listed under the ATK section (this driver dates from 2007 and isn't Win7 compatible)
Instead, expand the Utilities section. The first entry will be "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" and you'll see that the driver dates from 2009. Install using compatibility mode and reboot to ensure that it's working.

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs
