    Virtual PC and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD

    I recently changed out motherboards in a secondary computer to an ASUS
    P5KPL-CM; Nvidia G8600 video card, intel 6400 Core2 Duo Processor. Windows
    XP Pro Service Pack 3 runs okay, except when I try to load a hard drive image
    within Virtual PC. I primarly use Virtual PC 2004 but I get the same error
    if I uninstall that and load Virtual PC 2007 instead. All I can read of the
    error is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL because the BSOD just flashes momentarily and
    then the computer reboots. I've swapped out video cards, memory, and hard
    drives. I've loaded only basic (motherboard and video card) drivers and
    tried it with drivers and all windows updates; same thing; I can start
    Virtual PC but as soon as the Virtual OS starts up the BSOD appears and the
    computer reboots. Reason

    That error is either a bad driver or bad hardware unfortunately...
