Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, and that supports the hot removal of PCI devices.
  • You perform a hot removal of a PCI device on a storage controller.

In this scenario, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

STOP 0x0000007E (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED


  • The parameters in this error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all “0x0000007E” Stop errors are caused by this issue.
