[Discuss] a virtual challenge..


So I'm trying to do something rather complicated and contorted. 
Basically I have a virtual box windows 7 guest environment which is 
running fine using virtual box, but if I boot it using VMware, the 
vmware guest causes a windows blue screen to happen at boot up time.

So, without reinstalling windows 7 from scratch under VMware, I need to 
disable a driver which seems to work under virtual box but not under 
vmware. Do you guys know how to hunt for this driver? How to find out 
which driver is causing the VMware guest to blue screen? and then how to 
replace it with a generic windows driver?
