BugCheck2Linux allows you to continue working on a PC after a blue screen of death in Windows
However, experts recommend caution when using BugCheck2Linux.
A tool has been developed called BugCheck2Linux which provides the ability to continue working on the PC in linux-console after a blue screen of death (BSOD) occurs in the Windows operating system.
The BugCheck2Linux project extends the existing ability to run executables by introducing a feature callback error checking after a BSOD, which allows you to emulate a different operating system on the screen.
Specialists emphasize the unusual nature of this project and advise users to exercise caution when using it on their computers. In addition, backups are recommended to prevent potential problems.
BugCheck2Linux functions at the driver level in the system, which in turn runs a small RISC V emulator running Linux after a BSOD occurs. Bootvid.dll is used to display information on the screen, and the PS/2 keyboard driver is used for input.
The developer of the project, known by the pseudonym NSG650, used documentation by bootvid from ReactOS team, RISC V emulator and Linux image from mini-rv32ima as well as information from OSdev Wiki to work through PS/2.
Currently, BugCheck2Linux has certain features: the screen resolution is limited to 640×480 pixels and 16 colors, and running Linux is only possible on systems with BIOS that do not support UEFI. In addition, the emulator is slow, and keyboard support is limited, for example, you cannot use the backspace key.
