Hello.

Running Win11 (22631.3085). i7 7700k. B250 chipset.

I am making an image copy of a damaged disk using an usb enclosure. The thing is that when plugging the disk in, Windows tells me the disk needs to be repaired (run chkdsk), but after a few seconds I got a blue screen of death with some details about ntfs.sys [I know the partition isn't readable as well as $MFT as well].
After swapping msahci.sys driver for Intel one (iaStorAC.sys), the disk can be read properly and the system is perfectly stable (no bsod).

Any ideas?

PS - I launched a mini Win10xpe to check and it seems msachi is fine there (no bsod).

After several tests I have found the error is quite random. It fails when partition is not readable. So disregard this post.
