DISORDERLY_SHUTDOWN Parameters

Parameter Description

1

The total number of dirty pages

2

The number of dirty pages destined for the page file

3

Windows Server 2003 only: The size of the nonpaged pool available at the time of the bug check (in pages)

Windows Vista and later: Reserved

4

Windows Server 2003 only: The current shut down stage

Windows Vista and later: The most recent modified write error status

Cause

Windows attempted to shut down, but there were no free pages available to continue operations.

Because applications were not terminated and drivers were not unloaded, they continued to access pages even after the modified writer had terminated. This causes the system to run out of pages, since the page files could be used.
