So, like the title suggest.... has anyone managed to crash Windows enough to cause a BSOD on a Mac...? :D :D :p

PS: WinXP with Boot Camp of course....

Theoretically at the moment, I don't think there should be too much reason. There's only a limited amount of hardware that windows will have to deal with, and all of it has drivers provided by apple, and if those are good...

I did on my MBP - it appeared that it recognized the camera and listed it under "My Computer" - so I double clicked it and was greeted w/ the BSOD. Not surprised in the least.

Yep. Only in BootCamp does this happent too, not xom. When installing AIM 5.9 (triton really sucks), it'll crash at installing imghlp.dll.

I submited a bug report to Apple.

Installing Skype gave me a BSOD for a second before it rebooted by itself, I held down option and booted into Windows XP again and uninstalled Skype. I have had no further problems, works like a charm! :D

EDIT: I tried to instal Alcohol 120% (CD/DVD drive emulation software) and got a BSOD...restarted and everything is fine just a heads up! :p
