BSOD STOP0x000000d1 bridge.sys Windows 8 Hyper-V

July 23, 2013

I’m running Windows 8 with the Hyper-V Role enabled on my LAB-top.
To connect my VMs to the outside world, i have created two Hyper-V Virtual Switches; one connected to my WiFi adapter, and one connected to the Onboard NIC.
Both connections are bridged, using the “Allow Management operating system to share this network adapter” setting, allowing the Host OS (Windows 8) to also use these interfaces.

This worked fine for me the last couple of months, but today i got a BSOD. 😦
Specifically: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(d1)
After starting the Crash Analyzer tool, which is part of DaRT (Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset), the cause of the BSOD appeared to be the bridge.sys driver.

bridge.sys

This is the driver that provides the functionality for the network bridging that is done when you enable the “Allow the management OS to share this network adapter” in hyper-v.
It seems I’m not the only one that experienced this issue; Marius Sandbu and Henk hoogendoorn also encountered this, and have provided some workarounds (disable bridging on the WiFi nic)

For now, i will continue using the bridging, unless i get more BSODs…

For what it’s worth; i have been running this setup for 3 months now, and i have used the bridging over WiFi and the onboard NIC quite extensively, but have never had any problems with it.

So my question is; why did this start now? Updates? Patches?
