Windows 7: BSOD on boot, crashes at AVGIDSxx.sys, CLASSPNP.sys

I had encountered the same problem.

I use Imagex to backup my system image regularly.
Upgrading to newer hardware, I applied my image to the new machine.
At first it would refuse to boot and BCDBOOT would fail; I overcame that eventually and ran into this problem.
Windows would start to load, then dump and reboot the machine.
I tried to boot w/ Command prompt to watch what was loading and hopefully find a clue; it was choking on the avgidsha.sys load and dumping to a BSOD.
I've researched this problem extensively and stumbled across the above quote.
I recalled the setting in my BIOS where AHCI was set; I presumed that was the mode of my HDD.
I set it to IDE and presto! Now all I need to do is follow the steps to enable AHCI.
Just wanted to fortify the above claim and solution.

Thanks all!

Tweaking boot time (classpnp.sys?)
I'm looking for ways to reduce my reboot time (102 seconds according to this script). I've pruned BIOS routines and startup items, which leaves the bit in the middle. I realise on HDDs (3 x F3s in RAID0; 6.1 WEI; 350MB/s sequentials) I'll never see the sub-60 second reboot times of SSDs, but I...
