With GPLPV, I added a sysrq handler such that 'B' causes an immediate
bug check. If you have a windows system that you are happy to destroy,
something like deleting a critical driver might do the trick, unless
Windows detects it and puts it back again. Deleting a critical
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\xxx service key might also work -
if you delete the key for a boot time driver you'll get an 0x7B bug
