  • Although Microsoft analysis suggests parity causing the issue , there is no strong  evidence to support that .
  • Parity installs registry callback but it is not sufficient reason to decide if the driver is responsible for crash.
  • Carbon Black engineering team suspects that the reason for BSOD is either hardware related (memory or hard drive) or caused by virtualization layer after crash dump analysis.
