Sometimes it happens that Windows BSOD occures without any dump file generated. It could take some time to figure out why there is no dump file generated and what to do. If this happens on customer side, sometimes it is really problematic due to different policies, restrictions, etc. So, the only thing you have is your driver version and crash address as well as base address of the driver.

Well, this is enough to have a clue what exactly went wrong. You can either calculate offset of crash using this method: http://www.shcherbyna.com/?p=1211 or use bos tool to do that. The name wbos stands to “Windows Bsod Offset Search”.

The tool is written in C++ and runs only in Windows. You can download it here: http://www.shcherbyna.com/files/myprojects/bos.exe. You can also check virustotal report on bos.exe to see that it is clean.

P.S. Source code of wbos is licensed under GPL v3 license and can be downloaded here.
