BSOD on boot when the drive letter is not available   24 February 2017, 06:48

I've had an issue (BSOD during boot), due to a drive letter being already used by a real device. Before the reboot the Ramdisk was unmounted, but not deleted, so obviously the unmount is not permanent...

What version of RAM Disk was that? We fixed a similar issue in version 3.4.8:

* Fixed a BSOD when a boot-time volume couldn't be mounted.


Regarding remembering the mounted state, it's different for logon-time and boot-time RAM disks:
  • A logon-time disk remembers its state. If dismounted before reboot, it will not be mounted when the system restarts.
  • A boot-time disk does not do so. Even if dismounted before reboot, it will be mounted again when the system restarts.
