I have a host that has 31 VM's running on it, all windows. They are running
the same template, which has the latest GPLPV drivers installed. The problem
occurred today when I went to add the 32nd VM (pretty freaky number!), again
from the same template. Now when the VM boots up I get a BSOD.

Interestingly, I have the same problem, except that I can only get 30 XP VM's to run, and the 31st fails. I'm using gplpv_XP_0.11.0.213 and Xen 3.1 on CentOS 5.5 x86_64; with a much earlier GPLPV version (I forget the exact version, maybe 0.9.12) I did not encounter such a limit. No idea why.
