I am running a 780 Ti in an Asrock Z87 Fatal1ty Killer mainboard. I chose Win Server 2012 R2 180 day trial and installed the latest nVidia drivers (tried both WHQL and Beta).
The problem is that I get a bluescreen after a few seconds trying to run my CUDA application. BAD_POOL_HEADER and such (memory corruption). Before that bluescreen, the nVidia driver is typically being reported as crashing by Windows.
So far I have tried disabling CPU and PCI sleep states, reduced PCI bus speed from Gen 3.0 to 2.0. And I did a BIOS update for the mainboard. Mayvbe it isn’t a hardware issue after all?
Is Windows Server 2012 R2 generally unsupported for CUDA using consumer card drivers? If so, why did the driver install without a hitch ;)
