    CPU: 3 GHz Intel Core i7

    GPU: Intel Iris 1536 MB

    RAM: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    SSD recently installed: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB -

    Motherboard/Laptop model: MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014)

    Screen(s) Number: 1

    Screen(s) Resolution: 2560 x 1600 Retina

    Audio Codec: Unsure

    Ethernet Card: None

    Wifi/BT Card: Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x112) - Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 ( AirPortDriverBrcmNIC-1305.8)

    What guide/tool I followed:

    What part I got an issue with:

    The new SSD is working great on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. The issue arises on Windows 10 - I have tried with various different versions with the same result. And by THE issue I mean this is the only issue I have had, but it is a serious one. If I am running Windows 10 and I unplug my laptop charger, the screen freezes for around 10 seconds and then I get a BSOD (saying CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED). If I do not plug back in the charger, Windows 10 will restart, freeze again on the login screen, and then crash with the same error. If I keep the charger plugged in, there are no issues. If I unplug the charger while running MacOS, there are no issues.

    NOTE: I am using a bootcamp installation workaround from the above guide. It worked as intended.

    Here are the two recommendations to Install BootComp with success on a MacBook Air / Pro with a NVMe SSD :
    leave the Magsafe charger plugged in during the whole installation process (don't run on battery)
    When you see the error pop-up, "The Computer restarted unexpectedly....", please do the following :
    1. Press Shift + F10 keys.
    2. Launch "regedit".
    3. Find this directory, "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Status\ChildCompletion"
    4. Once you can see "setup.exe" in the right section, double-click it and modify the value to 3.
    5. Close the regedit.
    6. Reboot

    I realize that this is a very specific issue, but if anyone has ideas I would really appreciate it. I can also supply various config files or images if requested but at this point I'm not sure what would be useful.
