[ms4w-users] new server crashes generating tiles

Thanks for your suggestion!  The computer is an HP Proliant DL385 G2.  I
went to HP.com this morning and downloaded the latest drivers pack for
the machine.  After installing and rebooting I started the precache
render again.  It crashed again about an hour into the render.

The computer is mounted in a rack and accessed via Remote Desktop.  I
don't actually get to see the BSOD so I may be assuming too much that
this is what is actually occurring, I'll have to hook up a monitor.
This is what I get when I log in again via remote desktop:

System Failure: Stop Error
BCCode : c2     BCP1 : 0000000000000007     BCP2 : 000000000000121A     
BCP3 : 0000000000000000     BCP4 : FFFFFADFFF974010     OSVer : 5_2_3790

SP : 2_0     Product : 272_3

Are you talking about the BSOD: Blue screen of death?
That can only be caused by software running in kernel mode, for
example badly coded video drivers (this was common in the oldNT4
Since you are running on a 64bit OS I wouldn't be surprised if the
bsod was caused by flacky 32bit drivers. BTW, what hardware is it (hp,
dell, ibm or other)? IIf I was in you I'd look at the vendor site for
updated drivers.

Also next time the bsod bites you write down the error, that is
usually most useful in finding the culprit.
