How to enable verbose BSOD screen in Windows 10


In Windows 10 the Blue Screen of Death:

hides the parameters of the kernel panic:

Ideally you would tell the user to write them down, or take a picture:

(0xC0000005, 0x8A9A8020, 0x8B39AEC4, 0x8B39ABC0)

And then i'd know:

  • The exception code that was not handled: 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION)
  • The address where the exception occurred: 0x8A9A8020
  • The address of the exception record: 0x8B39AEC4
  • The address of the context record: 0x8B39ABC0

It's obviously more useful when its something like:

  • Indicates the cause of the failure: 4 (Unable to create GUID string from binary GUID.)
  • NTSTATUS code: 0xA00A0007 (E_OUTOFMEMORY)

But regardless of my motivations, i would like to disable the friendly BSOD in favor of the informative one.
