Blame it on poorly written and tested drivers in Boot Camp, most likely the HFS feature. Rename to disable and you are more likely to be okay.
Also update your graphic driver directly, too.
And RealTek for audio.
Rename AppleHFS.sys and AppleMNT.sys
By doing the following you will disable HFS mount / read mode on windows XP, Vista, 7.
Navigate to c:/windows/system32/drivers/AppleMNT.sys, rename the AppleMNT.sys file to something like AppleMNT_keep.sys or something of your likings.
The faulty HFS driver is a valid concern. It seems to happen on many systems.
You find it in Windows/system32/drivers/AppleHFS.sys
Renaming to AppleHFS_disabled.sys will avoid the blue screens until you have found another solution or Apple updates Bootcamp 3
After renaming both myself because they are no longer "*.sys" or something? they are gone. In my case AppleHFS prevented Windows Backup from running to end and was causing error "some files skipped" and while some might find reading convenient, I prefer Windows not have even read-only access.
You can probably do better with MacDrive8.
Hi The Hatter,
after name modifications and and a double reboot (?) your solution works and now my 7 is pretty stable... or at least does not crash in a minute ;o)
PS: Dear Mr. Apple, it would be nice to have the option to choose what we want to install in the BootCamp package if you don't want to make effort for robust drivers...
