After you install an intermediate network driver, such as the DynamicAccess software Intermediate driver from 3COM Corporation, the Windows NT computer may display a blue screen error message in Tcpip.sys with a STOP 0x0000001E. The second dword of the stop code will be 0xC00000005. This has only been observed on multiprocessor computers. An intermediate driver is a network driver that is layered between a transport driver and a miniport driver to provide added functionality.


The Tcpip.sys driver does not properly initialize on multiprocessor computers.
