Windows 2008 R2 image fails with blue screen error 0x0000005D

I added a Win2012 R2 image (via glance) of format vmdk. The image already has latest virtio 0.1-81 and also cloudbase.init package installed. When I start the instance created out of this image, Windows does not boot up and I get a 'blue screen of death' error 0x00000005D. I tried using 'hw_disk_bus=scsi', 'hw_disk_bus=ide' and 'hw_disk_bus=virtio' options one by one to make it boot from each of these drivers, but still its the same result.

Can anyone point me to what the possible reason could be ?

On the same OpenStack setup. we have a Centos image working fine, which was also added (via glance) in vmdk format.

Thanks Venkat

Those images are for KVM, so they load specific drivers that you don't have on ESXi.

We use the following scripts, which automate the entire installation:
