Since it's a problem inside Windows itself, you're not going to be able to solve it.

The only thing you can do is have hints what the problem was by looking at the first argument of the crash:

  • 1: No LoaderXIPRom descriptor was found in the loader memory list.
  • 2: Unable to open the RAM disk driver (ramdisk.sys or \Device\Ramdisk).
  • 3: FSCTL_CREATE_RAM_DISK failed.
  • 4: Unable to create GUID string from binary GUID.
  • 5: Unable to create symbolic link pointing to the RAM disk device.

But you won't be able to figure out why the code got an error when it tried to convert a string into a GUID, or why there was a error when it tried to create a symbolic link to the RAM disk.
