I tried the XP driver before and it did exactly the same thing. Since I
can't change the Modem.sys file, I am going to see if there are any settings
I can change. It does seem strange that when the drivers are installed, the
modem will work. But on reboot, it blue screens and the modem must be
uninstalled to recover. It seems a little backward to me that they have
broken something that wasn't broken before.
I have bugged it, so either they didn't have time, or didn't bother to fix
it in this build, assuming the bug report was received. Doesn't someone in
the Beta Testing Program know what bugs are being addressed?
