Lou Vega a thump to the brain

The BSOD was caused by a driver compatibility problem between Virtual Clone Drive and Windows 7. I had installed Virtual Clone Drive to see if it could be used to mount ISOs in Windows 7, but not only did it not work in Windows 7, it caused the BSOD of my previous blog post.

So if you want to experience it for yourself, download and install Virtual Clone Drive on your Windows 7 box and see what it does. Fixing it is as easy as uninstalling Virtual Clone Drive.

Note to Microsoft - we (geeks) really want an ISO mount utility as part of Windows 7. Please?

Note to Slysoft - Maybe if Microsoft doesn't put it in Windows 7 you guys could make your software compatible with Windows 7. If you make yours compatible with Windows 7, maybe Microsoft will buy it from you and you can all retire early :)

I will note that this is in a VPC and some folks are telling me the VPC interactions with Windows 7 aren't quite up to speed yet. I'll try this whole setup again when I upgrade an existing physical machine to Windows 7 this weekend.

I didn't get a blue screen with clone drive..

Instead clone drive freezes and I am forced to do a forced quit on it.
