I installed the drivers into a existing Vista 32 bit HVM which had
older version of the drivers installed and it bsod on reboot with
0x0000007B, I tried /nogpl and also safe mode but neither worked, I
reinstalled Vista and tried again but I got the same result.
Once the qemu drivers have been disabled by booting with /gplpv (or
without /nogplpv in newer versions) is it sufficient to reset/reboot
the domain to boot without the drivers, or does it need to be
destroyed and created again for the qemu emulation to resume?
Fresh install of vista + 0.9.12 pre9 = 0x0000007B :(.
What do I need to do to debug this?
I am running 3.3.1 rc4, I can try 3.3 if you think it might help,
perhaps I need the patch for hiding devices?
