BSOD 0x00000136 indicates that initialization failed while attempting to boot from a virtual hard disk (VHD). The volume on which the VHD is placed does not have enough free space to expand.

The reasons

Error 0x00000136 occurs when using a virtual HDD that is configured as dynamically expandable. When booting is performed, the dynamically expanding Virtual Hard Disk expands to its maximum size. This causes an error warning that the disk on which it is located does not have enough free space for expansion.

Troubleshooting 0x00000136

To eliminate the error 0x00000136, free up enough space on the volume so that the virtual HDD can expand its full size. If the dynamically expanding VHD is larger than the capacity of the volume, you must recreate it as the VHD corresponding to the size of the volume.

4 Recommendations for the Elimination of BSoD:

1. 0x00000136: VHD_BOOT_HOST_VOLUME_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE may appear due to errors in the code of the operating system itself. Microsoft is constantly working to correct such errors, releasing patches and service packs. Installed the latest update package (Service pack) and the constant updating of the system will save a lot of errors.
2. If 0x00000136: VHD_BOOT_HOST_VOLUME_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE appeared after the newly installed device driver or program. It is necessary to roll back the driver to an earlier version. With programs, things are easier, removing them will eliminate the cause of the failure. The “Run Last Known Good Configuration” option may be useful.
3. If 0x00000136: VHD_BOOT_HOST_VOLUME_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE began to appear after you have connected a new device to the system, then you need to check it for compatibility with your operating system. If the device is compatible, then you need to download the latest drivers from the official website of the manufacturer and install them. If the latest drivers are installed, you need to install an earlier version of the drivers. If the device is incompatible with the operating system, then it is necessary either to change this device or to change the operating system that supports this device.
4. Very often the cause of the appearance of 0x00000136: VHD_BOOT_HOST_VOLUME_NOT_ENOUGH_SPACE is a malfunction of the RAM. To test it, you can use testing programs, such as memtest86+.
