Nonsense! All those bugcheck codes are excellent indicators of a faulty
kernel-mode driver and if he was to open one up in windbg it would tell him in
an instant which driver was at fault. They are very useful postmortem
diagnostics! Not as much as a full memory dump of course, but they'll let you
narrow it down; I've frequently diagnosed faulty drivers this way.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
