Is there a registry value, or similar control, that causes Windows to "pause" when displaying a "blue screen" severe error? The default seems to be to flash the error, then restart the computer, effectively covering up the problem and its identifying information.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

OP is asking how to stop Windows from automatically restarting after BSOD is shown.

 

also I'm not sure how that advertisement link in your comment which is related to an entirely different thing, can help his situation.

If you get windows up and running:

Start,run,type control, enter
System and security, system, advanced system settings,startup and recovery settings button, system failure

Deselect automatically restart

Also notice the dumo file location

From Microsoft store, download and install WibDbg preview, and then open your .dmp file. It will provide you with more info as to what is causing the bsod
