    I have had my bootcamp install for almost a year now and two times in the past two weeks my bootcamp XP installation has randomly restarted over night while letting uTorrent run (same torrents), now this has never happened to me before while using utorrent or windows/ (w/ bootcamp), so im not 100% if it is, but for some reason im gonna assume thats the case but i have no idea how to find out, is there anyone that knows how to find any info on 'crash' logs for XP or a way to tell?

    as it reboots right into my OSX drive/partition.

    thanks!!

    Start > Run > eventvwr

    This is the Windows Event Viewer, everything that ever happens will be in here some where.

    Take a look at the system log.

    thanks even chekcing the application and system events in the event manager nothing showed up between the times i left the CPU and the time i cam eback to find it in OS X instead of windows.


    im wondering could a torrent do this specifically or?

    im just puzzled, so i can figure out what it is, so i can avoid dong whatever it is im doing thats causing it.

    thanks again!!

    i am using xp sp2. the problem i have is: freeze up.

    maybe something to do with iTune. i don't know. it would just stop... nothing works. but make a sound like "Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....."

    I have to press and hold to restart. This happens once a month maybe.
