I got this screen.
I rebooted and it seems fine.
Any thing you can add to the cause of the error?
I just started using AHCI
I have the event viewer, but what file should I look for?
As far as all the other advice, it is over my head.
OK, tell us something unique about your hardware.
What kinda stuff you got plugged in ?
What kinda computer is it, make and model ?
Did you add PCI Express SATA cards ? (I have one
in my newest machine, to protect the motherboard.)
What port is the SATA drive plugged into ? Southbridge ?
(sometimes they're color coded, and the ones that
are a "different color" are the add-on chip
Is there anything unique about the drive ? Is
it an Alien Spaceship drive with SATA port ?
Or a WD Green ?
Just for the record, I've never heard of that error
before. You have a good puzzle in hand.
The BSOD crash APC_INDEX_MISMATCH was caused by an update
to the Trend Micro Antivirus+ 2016. The solution is to
update to Trend Micro Antivirus+ 2017, as explained in
their web page Getting stuck on Windows Startup Repair
after updating Trend Micro Security."
Naughty, AVs playing with driver stacks ?
This is an example of someone else getting one of those.

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x14A6F0)
Bugcheck code: 0x1 (0x7F , 0x0, 0xFFF, 0xFFFFC680CD0ACCC0)

This indicates that there has been a mismatch in the APC state index.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem
is caused by another drivers that cannot be identified at this time.
Which means it might not be that easy to find. The individual
in that example, was getting audio problems just before the crash.
Someone here gets that error while playing the game Overwatch.
This event viewer example, unfortunately, doesn't show an APC mismatch,
so isn't a perfect example of where to look. Using the date/time of
when the computer crashed, is going to make it easier to spot
any entry the computer might have created. For example, if
might have had a problem a few moments before the crash happened,
and there's a bread crumb there for you.
I have two SSD drives and a video card.
I have been using the same machine for a long time. The only thing
including the service pack. I ended up turning off updates.
updates back on and it tried to install about 180 updates.
I did a fresh format and reinstalled Windows. I ran the first set of
updates and they installed fine including Sp1.
this morning when I booted up and reverted.
