Debugging Stop 0x1A – Corrupt Image Relocation Table

This blog is most likely, going to be more of me attempting to explain relocation and the relocation fix up table.

The first parameter indicates that image relocation fix-up table has become corrupt, the image relocation table is a table of pointers for a program, which are used to assign memory addresses to parts of the program. Each pointer is called a fix-up. Pointers are basically used in programming, to assign or use memory addresses in programs.

The MSDN documentation points out, that this issue is more hardware related, and therefore the only valid reasons I could think of are – corrupt memory addresses are being assigned or maybe the MMU wasn’t translating virtual pages to physical pages, resulting in invalid memory addresses.
