    Okay, this one is gettin me insane!
    I've got a Late08 MBP (2.8ghz, 9600m gt, 4gb ram, seagate 500gb 7200 (no gforce protection)) with Snow leopard and Windows 7.

    Installed Windows 7 64x (also tried it with 86x) installed the bootcamp 3.0 drivers, did a Windows 7 Update.

    Started playing a Game...about 5-20 minutes later -> BSOD
    Restart,....playing another Game -> BSOD
    restart.....surfing through the internet -> BSOD


    Installed latest drivers for audio, video, wireless lan... BSOD....

    Delete partition, format hdd (+snow leopard)
    re-installed snowleopard, re-installed bootcamp+win7.
    Just installed Bootcamp drivers - no update - started playing a game - BSOD


    my MBP broken or something?!?!? OSX works like a charm, but i can't run ffs WIN7!?

    from january - June i've got Vista 64x, no problems.... what the hell is going on?

    Is it possible to ask my reseller or apple hotline?
    or will i get "we don't support windows 7 sorry"
    is it possible a hardware defect? RAM? Mainboard? (but in OSX i don't have any problems..iam able to play cod4, WC tft,....)

    :-/ help!

    Searching for 0x000000F4 returns probable causes of hard drive misconfiguration/impending failure.

    Maybe run a full hardware test against the hard drive.

    Apple have a faulty HFS driver in BC 3.0. It causes frequent BSODs.

    Go to windows/system32/drivers/AppleHFS.sys and rename the driver. You should have no more problems.
