    Hey Mac Pro users, do you receive whea logger error on your bootcamped mac (windows 7, 8.1, or 10)
    I always have that particular WHEA Logger Event ID 46 error in my windows's event viewer. it affects any version of windows i use - 7, 8.1, and 10. I have 2012 mac pro 5,1. I have attached the screenshot to this post and see if you guys have the same error message as i do via windows event viewer.

    Thanks,

    Have you run a good memory tester - or even the one in the Windows F8 boot menu?

    I havent tried that but i ran stress test program called prime95 with blend setting (CPU, cache, Ram, etc) and it failed within 1-2 hours of testing. It stopped with error message - rounding was 0.5 less than 0.4 hardware failure detected consult stress.txt

    That (and your error log entry) is consistent with a hardware problem with RAM or CPU.

    Go to http://www.memtest.org/ and download a thumb drive or CD bootable version of a very good memory tester.

    Your error log entry of "machine check - memory" says "uncorrectable by ECC memory error". This is usually an indication of bad RAM, but can also be triggered by a driver trying to read or write non-existant memory.
