Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • A Fusion-io driver that uses PCI-Express solid-state drives (SSD) is installed on a Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012-based computer.

  • You experience a hard shutdown on the computer.

  • You start the computer, and then the Fusion-io driver performs a data consistency check.

  • After the consistency check is complete, the Fusion-io driver restarts the computer.

In this scenario, the computer freezes during the restart process. 

Cause

This issue is caused by a race condition that occurs in the shutdown path.

Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 file information notesImportant Windows 8 hotfixes and Windows Server 2012 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows 8" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 8" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.2.920 0.16 xxx

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

    RTM

    GDR

    6.2.920 0.20 xxx

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

    RTM

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
