Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running a 32-bit version of Windows Server 2008 or of Windows Vista.
  • You enable the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) feature.
  • You send a WHEA request to disable the processing of machine check errors.

In this scenario, the operating system incorrectly polls hardware for machine check errors.

Note: This issue does not occur on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or of Windows Server 2008.
