Blue Screen Your SQL Server On-Demand

These days I do a lot of testing with SQL Server.  When I am testing new features or helping clients implement SQL Server High Availability solutions I want to have several tests including blue screens.

Simulating blue screens actually might be much easier than you think.  For example, you can use Not My Fault from the system utilities to create blue screens whenever your heart desires.

Do you really want to push that Crash button?

Just remember, if you use Not My Fault and click on the Crash button, It Aint My Fault.

Instantly after clicking on the crash button you should see the following blue screen.
