RE: [Xen-users] Windows 2008 R2 64 bit BSoD

I have encountered this a lot.

I also have non-fixable exclaimations on my VBD drivers, but the system is 
working OK for me. (Win2k8-64 on xen under centos 56)

The solution I have used to fix the 7B stop error was found here

Importing the mergeide.reg as directed makes it so that it has some more 
default drivers available to it.

I have had very positive success getting mergeide to get me past a 7B stop 

I however have not have as good luck installing GPLPV.  Most servers I end up 
copying the INF and SYS files manually (the MSI rarely works 100% for me).  
Extract the MSI and right click the INF files and "Install" them manually.

Hope this helps.

I run Windows 2008 R2 x64 on Xen with OpenSuse. I've noticed the  
exclamation point as well and was not able to remove them.

If you run /NOGPLPV after you've installed the Xen PV drivers, you  
will not have any driver to run Windows OS, hence the BSOD.
