I recently installed Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, through Boot Camp, on my early 2011 MacBook Pro 15". I used the drives Apple provides for Windows 7. Everything works fine except I ocassionally get a BSOD. I had my dump files analyzed and the problem was with MacHalDriver.sys. More information from the dump file is available at this link: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-hardware/badpoolheade r-0x19-causing-bsod-on-windows-8/d6bafd0e-e759-4130-99fc-2f56a77d2d4a . Anyways I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem and if there was a solution to it.
I found a solution to my Bootcamp issue. My windows 8 install would crash once I tried changing the screen brightness either using the keyboard keys or trying to open up the bootcamp control panel. So I disabled the Generic PnP Monitor driver and I haven't had any issues since. I also put the Bootcamp.exe in windows 7 compatibility mode just in case. Edit: I also had the MacHALDriver.sys issue. This fixed it for me.
