    If you inspect your Windows system logs using the Event Viewer, you should find all the events related to your failed boot.

    Sorry, unfortunately not. All event logs (system, application, ...) end with the successful shutdown before kernel upgrade, show nothing of the failed boot with new kernel and continue with the successful boot after returning to the old kernel.

    In failure state the guest does not find the system drive at all, so is unable to boot or write events to the log on the missing system drive :-(

    You should look for the entries that relate only to your failed boot.
    They're there, and you'll find entries that likely relate to your blue screen.
    BTW -
    Usually the Windows Blue Screen for Win8 and later also contain an error at the bottom... It may be helpful but I've found may not be enough to get the whole picture... You'll more likely need the full error plus what leads up to that error.

    Just for the records: 2018 when the problem occurred I decided to stay with kernel 4.12.14-lp150.12.22-default. The next 5-6(?) kernel updates I tried always resulted in a guest blue screen so I rolled back to lp150.12.22 after each try. And there was no useful info on the bluescreen itself nor any log entry on the virtual disk (I'm a software engineer, familiar with windows and know where I would have to look).

    But after some time (sorry, don't remember the exact kernel number) the issue was obviously resolved and after a kernel update the vm guest booted ok. From then I applied every kernel update, upgraded the installation from LEAP 15.0 to LEAP 15.1 and everything is still fine. The guest vm is still booting and working normally without having to change anything in the virtualization or guest settings. So it was an intermediate problem of some kernel versions, fortunately resolved.
