Hi there

Please remove Deamon tool or alcohol 120% for testing, they are well-known for causing BSODs. Then please use this tool to remove sptd.sys
DuplexSecure - Downloads
Code:
sptd     sptd.sys     Mon Oct 12 03:55:14 2009 (4AD24632)
Then, please run check disk, following this tutorial
Disk Check

bugcheck:
Code:
BugCheck F4, {3, fffffa8005888b30, fffffa8005888e10, fffff80002b93540}
Probably caused by : hardware_disk

I have a verbatim external combo harddrive, could this drive be making any trouble? It's not SMART compatible.. I mainly use it with eSATA. But your advice would be to stop using virtual drives? Well, that's hard to live without. How do I make this "BugCheck"?

Yes, stop using virtual drives for the time being. Later on, if you decide the BSODs have stopped, you can use MagicDisc for virtual CD drives. As for virtual hard drives, you can use the built-in VHD system:

Virtual Hard Disk - Create and Attach VHD

As for the hard drives: leave them unplugged for the time being.

You can use VHD as virtual PC, such as running window XP on window 7 mode, like running a command window that you can see everything in it is window xp, from the taskbar etc...

Let me ask, what do you use Daemon Tools for?

Then I can give a better recommendation.

mounting images,,, but I don't see the point in VHD. Could you explain it to me? Is it a kind of virtual sandbox or?

Mounting what kind of images, ISOs? Use MagicDisc for that, as it does not use SPTD.

I assumed you were using Daemon Tools to make virtual hard drives. The VHD is a virtual hard drive file. You can mount it, to function as a hard drive.
