Everytime i start my PC then open DayZ foto the First time! The second one it's ok

Hello Remoz. and thank your for your report.
Have you tried other games as well? To make sure this is indeed related specifically to DayZ SA?

Hello DanielF!
I've just made this try:

  • PC fresh startup from poweroff state, open X-Plane -> OK, open The Long Dark -> OK, open DayZ -> Blue Screen!
  • Reboot (reset on Blue Screen)
  • open DayZ -> OK -> close DayZ
  • Reboot normally the OS (win 10 pro 64bit)
  • open DayZ -> OK -> close DayZ
  • OS Shutdown (with poweroff at end, normal PC shutdown)
  • PC fresh startup from poweroff state, open DayZ -> Blue Screen

I think the problem occurs only after a shutdown, not after a restart, this probably due to the "fast startup technology" of windows that not make a full shutdown but only a kind of suspension/shutdown hybrid, maybe?

Thanks you ;-)

I also get this.
Steam says DayZ is not installed in steam and i have to reinstall it after the bluescreen and restart. However no files are deleted and it instantly finishes downloading and installing.
Happened three times now after switching between the Experimental- and Stress Test-builds.

Had this happen to me this morning, never seen the Windows 10 BSOD before!

Yes, it happens to me too, but i think this is only an effect of bluescreen and happens when the manifest file of the game in Steam was in write state then corrupt the file. To avoid reinstalling game i've backupped all the manifests files of Steam Games then i restore it if corrupted by bluescreen.
