APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows XP Embedded



SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a Microsoft Windows XP Embedded-based computer that uses a disk that is part of a Storage Area Network (SAN) array.
  • You use the /maxmem switch to specify the maximum amount of random access memory (RAM) memory that Windows may use.
  • You use drivers that use the MmMapIoSpace and the MmUnmapIoSpace functions. These functions record a log of mapping and of unmapping of memory that is larger than the maximum memory value.

In this scenario, you may receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

0x000000D1
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

CAUSE

This problem can occur because of stale Translation Look-aside Buffer (TLB) entries in which the virtual-to-physical mapping does not match the Page Table Entry (PTE). The error occurs when the MmMapIoSpace function is called by using either MmCached or MmNoncached memory, and the stale TLB entries are not correctly invalidated. When the MmMapIoSpace function is called by using MmUncached memory, the TLB entries are correctly invalidated. The problem does not occur if the drivers use the MmMapIoSpace or the MmUnmapIoSpace functions only at load and unload time.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, install Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 2 (SP2). For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
