    what a coincidence, that in two different devices, and two different reasons, the blue screen shows the same text…
    bullshit
    why have you installed it anyway if you don’t like it?

    What Apple didn’t qualify their sounds & keyboard drivers. And gosh – you’ve never seen a kernel panic? Had three on my PPC Mini last tueday.

    Both of them are a hardware related issue (a problem with MSKSSRV.SYS, the sound card driver), so they’re more Apple related than MS related.

    I’m using both Win and MacOSX in a daily basis, and most (if not all) of BSOD or KernelPanics I suffered are hardware or third part drivers issues. So it’s no strange that you get this with an alpha drivers (as Apple used to release).

    Suppose it’s the SAME reason they bluescreen? They have similar hardware – they’re not completely different. Remember that the BootCamp drivers are pre-alpha.

    >why have you installed it anyway if you don’t like it?

    Because you can.
