    I was having a permanent crash on boot, on Windows 8.1, after installing the Boot Camp drivers v5.1.5621. I've found a solution to this problem; I'm posting here, in case, someone has the same issue...

    My System:

    Mac Pro 2012
    2 x 2 TB hard drives (software raid - mirror) OS X Mountain Lion
    2 x 2 TB hard drives (software raid - mirror) Windows 8.1

    a) OS X can't see or access Windows partitions (dynamic volumes) no crashes
    b) Windows crash on boot after boot camp drivers install. Remember, Windows volumes are dynamic!

    Install Windows 8.1
    Install BootCamp (do not reboot!)

    Browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\
    Delete or rename AppleHFS.sys & AppleMNT.sys

    In the Start Menu search box type "regedit" and press Enter
    In Regedit delete:

    Reboot the system
    Configure and create you're mirror set and let it synchronize
    Enjoy you're Mac
