Windows 7: BSOD, cant find source of the problem.

BSOD, cant find source of the problem.

Hi,

I'm currently having serious issues with my windows 7 installation (freshly installed yesterday). I keep getting a BSOD, at seemingly random times. It does not happen during safe mode with networking, and sometimes doesn't happen at all in normal mode. It is quite frequent, and has happened 4 times today.

Device Manager shows no question marks, and all updates have been installed.

I have OS X installed on a seperate hardrive and having no problems what so ever. So i'm guessing its a driver problem in windows? If it was a RAM problem surely it would effect the mac side too.

I've uploaded a .rar (virus scanned with bitdefender), of the bluescreen error and dumps.

I've been going through the various errors and criticals in the event viewer but cant make much sense of what its saying. The critcal errors are always accompanied by Service Control Manager errors:

Code:
The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error: 
The dependency service or group failed to start.
Basically the criticals say its a kernal-power problem:

Code:
- System 

  - Provider

   [ Guid]  {331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}

I'd really appreciate some help, i've tried my best to uninstall various things that may be causing it. And I always think i've solved it until it happens again.

Thankyou,

Tim


*EDIT* Just ran a SFC and it cam back with nothing to report.

It so simple its obvious. Your MDPMGRNT.SYS mac partition driver is casuing the crashes. I would un-install it just to check. If the problem stops you need to either leave it off or find an update to prevent this from happening.

I am clueless at how or where.

Dont be didnt enter my mind till a ran the debugger. Usually the mac partition driver is pretty stable so I can only assume it is either old or corrupted
