A Guide to the BOOTLOG NOT LOADED Blue Screen of Death Error

The BOOTLOG_NOT_LOADED BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error may appear during the initialization process for Windows XP, Vista, 2000, 2008, and Windows 7 and 8. It means that a problem has been encountered during the boot process due to the failure to load certain boot files. The boot files may be missing or corrupted, and the emergency shutdown of the computer is implemented to prevent damage and data loss.


The BSOD error is usually caused by an unstable registry system or corrupted files, such as damaged system files that result in startup errors. The presence of damaged files destabilizes the system and results to errors when the necessary links are not found during system startup.

Damage to system files are due to factors such as incomplete uninstall of programs, incomplete software installations, and the use of improper methods in deleting applications and devices. Malware attacks can also cause critical damage to system files.

This BSOD error is also known as “BOOTLOG_NOT_LOADED” and “STOP 0x000000B6“. Some users of Windows OS have reported this error, which normally appears on the screen during the initialization of the system.

You can resolve the BOOTLOG_NOT_LOADED BSOD by employing System Restore procedures. This process allows the computer to recover from system errors and other problems by returning the system files and programs to an earlier point in time, which is called the restore point.

To perform a System Restore, close all programs and files and restart the computer. Click on the Start button and then type System Restore on the search box. From the list of search results, click on System Restore and enter the administrator password when you are prompted to provide this information. Follow the prompts and instructions that appear on the screen to choose a restore point, and then restart the computer when the restoration has been completed.
