Sorry to hear what's old is new again with the HFS.sys issues.
I also go into mscongig and turn off services and startup items I don't want to load, then go to Services and I'd try to pick out any there and see if there is an "Apple HFS" related that you can change from automatic to manual or disabled.
The other thing I do is go into Programs and uninstall the things like Bonjour and MobileMe that I don't want, too noisey, they are always "chatting" and keeping network active.
The 2008 can't use the 7300GT, and I wish a 8800GT or GTS250 was a mid range option.
I'd uninstall whatever Nvidia driver Apple installs and let Windows install its own and then install 196.21 that came out this week 19th.
MacDRive8 disables or removes the AppleHFS driver - I wonder if they have a demo worth looking into, though I prefer to not mount HFS from Windows.
Same here on a 2009 MBP 17".
I bought Win7 Professional 3 weeks ago, installed it on a BC partition, installed BC 3.0, updated to 3.1. It worked flawlessly for two weeks or so. Then all of a sudden I got a BSoD caused by AppleMNT.sys. Hadn't seen a BSoD for years so I thought it was just some random one-off. Rebooted, got the same BSoD again. After 5-6 attempts where the AppleMNT.sys BSoD would appear after 5-10 minutes I went on Google to see if this was a known issue, only then did I find out that it was and that it's been around for months.
Went into safe mode and renamed the two Apple .sys files, zero problems after that. Well, no access to the OS X partition of course.
Kind of a bummer since I never had the problem with the Win7 public release candidate I had on this machine for many months along with BC 3.0. It was only now when I got around to buying a proper retail copy of Win7 and installed the supposedly Win7-tuned BC 3.1 that I ran into this crap.
Not holding my breath for a fix... it might be intentionally broken for all I know.
