Removed optical drive and now I get BSOD while windows 7 is loading

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I want to remove my optical drive, but I BSOD every time I disconnect it. I reconnect it, restart, and it loads right up. Anyone have some insight? I can't find much on google. Thanks.

Attach the dump file(s) you're getting when you remove the optical drive, I'm interested in seeing what Windows is labeling the cause as.

Navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip / rar up your latest dump files. Once you've done that, please attach the zip / rar to your post by clicking the paperclip icon in the reply / post box.

If there are no files there, you may have it set to writing Kernel Memory Dumps rather than Small. If so, the DMP will be located in C:/Windows itself and named MEMORY.DMP.

Another thing to try is to remove the optical drive from the device manager and then shut down Windows fully, then cold boot.

Ok, finally got time to look at this today. I can't find a dmp file with todays date, but here is what it says when I look at diagnostics after the BSOD

Root Cause found:
recent driver installation or upgrade may be preventing the system from starting

Repair Action: system files integrity check and repair
Result: Failed
Error Code: 0x490

I also disabled the drive and uninstalled the driver in the control panel. But same result.

Could it be that your boot priority is giving you problems? If you have it set to Optical>HDD>Floppy, then maybe its throwing an error when there is no such optical installed.

I don't think so, my number 1 boot priority is my SSD with Windows on it. When I open the BIOS with the optical drive disconnected, it doesn't show up on the boot list. I will double check right now though.

EDIT: Boot Priority = SSD > External HDD > Optical Drive (I disabled it as the 3rd priority now) -- still got a BSOD with those settings and the drive unplugged

Try removing the external drive in the boot priority as well as un-plugging and removing the external drive from your system. Then disconnect and reboot. thumb.gif

OK, I disconnected my external HDD and removed it from the boot priority, then I uninstalled the optical drive and disconnected it. Rebooted and still blue screens (and reboots automatically) while loading windows.

Could it have anything to do with Intel RST (rapid storage technology), it is in my dock and shows the DVD-rom as am ATAPI device?
Also I was just looking at my system configuration and it shows my boot drive as device/harddiscvolume 2, but when I look at my SSD (which is my boot drive in the BIOS) it is Drive #0. Seems odd to me.

Sorry if I am way off base. I am new to windows 7. I have been using a mac for the last 6 years. Just made the switch back. thanks for trying to help me through this too.

I'm not sure, the screen just flashes blue and then the system reboots
Under "root cause" in the repair diagnosis, it shows an error code 0x490
