Stop 0x0000008e Iomdisk.sys
» Getting blus screen with this stop message - how do I fix? Also, can't get verifier.exe to verify drivers - I'm in safe mode.
Ramdisk.sys is a legitimate windows process used by many applications of Windows operating systems. So it is not a problem in most cases if you see several even copies of this process running in your background because they plays a core role for the connected programs. In most case, ramdisk.sys process is safe in supporting the programs which require this process/file in order to function correctly. However this process may have more than one variants and one of them may be spyware(Backdoor:Win32/Morix.B) or malware. To be sure we suggest that you scan your system for ramdisk.sys errors.
As we know, files with .sys extension also belong to dll files, its error is closely related to other dll files, any change or damage to them may lead to BSOD.
Whenever an exe file is initiated, it can call a DLL file to check whether the necessary space is available in your hard drive. It will also check if any similar code already exists in the system and then helps the exe file to only write the source code which is necessary in the system.
If you encounter an issue related to both exe file and dll file, normally it should be dealt with at the same time, just because they interact as both cause and effect. That's why DLL Suite is invented. This suite has three built-in features of fixing dll file error, exe virus infection and especially Fix BSOD for Iomdisk.sys error fix; it works after removing the viruses with antivirus software.
Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems are fixed, because of the above two built-in features in the Dashboard menu.

Start your computer using the "Last Known Good Configuration" feature and see if the computer boots up successfully without any errors.
For instructions, see: How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature in Windows XP
Method 2: Perform in-place upgrade. Refer the following article for instructions: How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP
Also, the problem appears to be the iomdisk.sys which is the "Iomega Disk Filter Driver". Did you install any Iomega software?
- JOHN GRAY replied on February 15, 2013: » I have not installed any new software recently. I do have IOmega Automatic Backup 1.02 and IOmega Ware 4.0.2 installed. I was successful uninstalling IOmegaWare 4.0.2, but IOmega Auto Backup won't uninstall. The strange thing is that it went from 6.61MB to 2.51MB, but won't completely disappear. I also uninstalled the driver for my IOmega Zip drive. But, all of this was for naught - I still get the blue screen, and the IOMDISK.SYS driver is still loaded.
- MICHAEL SUMNER replied on February 16, 2013: » Can you check if the following folder exists?:
If that folder exists then in that folder double-click "Uninstall AppServices" and proceed with the uninstall.
Hopefully that will uninstall the IOMDISK.SYS driver.
- JOHN GRAY replied on February 17, 2013: » I did this, and the system came up OK. I then did a scan using the product 'ErrorEnd' that found a bunch of errors, which it fixed. Then I re-booted and the system came up fine. The IOMDISK.SYS driver is still in place, and I tested the zip drive and all works OK. So, I'm good for now. Thanks for the help!
