Information on Bugcheck 0x5C (HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED )

Wim_VervoornWim_Vervoorn Member Posts: 17


I am a BIOS developer running into BUGCHECK 5c when I have the IOMMU enabled.

Unfortunately the available documentation doesn't provide an information on the arguments like in the other cases. This is what I get.

Arg1: 0000000000008200
Arg2: ffffffffc0000001
Arg3: 0000000000000009
Arg4: fffff803fc458cb8

Debugging Details:

ADDITIONAL_DEBUG_TEXT: Halfailures structure in bugcheck.cpp needs updated. Please information OCA (alias:werka).

Can anyone provide me with some pointer on the meaning of the arguments this would help a log an probably save a lot of debugging effort.

Thanks in advance.
