Hi, We just rebuild a base image with the following specs; -OS: Windows7x64+ SP1 + all patches -Drivers: VirtIO 1.6.5

Here is the probleme: In Openstack(grizzly), when we attach a volume to the already running instance, we get a blue screen. It's automatic, and it happen everytime. So the instance reboot, and after that the Volume is well recognized in windows and works almost fine. When we take a look to the memory dump, the problem is reladted to the storport.sys

The same image with the VirtIO 1.5.2 didn't reboot (bluescreen) when we attach a volume to the already running instance.

Is someone already see that? We make a lot of test building but we can't get rid of the bluescreen.

Yes it's a common issue. We are using VirtIO 1.52 in the official Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 evaluation images.

Here's the process that we use to create the images:

Update: VirtIO version 0.1-74 has just been released, we're going to run the tests today.

So finally,

I try again with the newest VirtIO driver 1.7.0 and there is no bluescreen when we attach a Volume. That's a good news.

Thanks Alex for the hint ;)
