Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a mount point on a volume on a Windows Server 2008-based computer or on a Windows Vista SP1-based computer.
  • You configure an Internet Information Services (IIS) log directory on this mount point.
In this scenario, the Windows Server 2008-based computer or the Windows Vista SP1-based computer restarts unexpectedly, and you receive a "0x0000007E" Stop error message.
To resolve this problem, install the hotfix that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 961324. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
961324 Stop error message when you run the Dynamic Partition Testing for a Hot Replace test that is included in the Windows Logo Kit in Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008: "Stop 0x0000000A"
To work around this problem, do not use a mount point for the log files. Instead, create a new volume with a drive letter and move the IIS log directory to the newly created volume.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
