Does anyone have any ideas how to debug this blue screen stop code? Any
ideas what the parameters are?

    I believe it means that KeAttachProcess() was called for a thread that was
    already attached. Attachment requests are not stackable until WIN2K where
    you need to use the request KeStackAttachProcess(). As for the parameters,
    I have no clue. If they look like addresses, I suggest using the !obj,
    !obja, or !object command in Windbg. One of these may tell you the type of
    objects pointed to by the addresses. If I were to guess, I would suspect
    one parameter might be the address of the process that is already attached.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Rob

    First parameter - KPROCESS pointer passed to KeAttachProcess (so, the
    new process).
    Second parameter - current thread's process.
    Third (I have doubts on it) - 1 is the thread is already attached to some
    process, 0 otherwise???
    Fourth - 1 is the attach attempt was on DPC level, 0 otherwise.
