When I try to create a virtual machine, the host bsod part way through the process. From the logs in lookes to fail/hang on the "Creating new VirtualDisckDriver with new VHD" step.
The BSOD error code is SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION : STOP:0x0000003B
When the machine has finished restarting, it looks to have created the vhd and XML files for the vm but it isn't accessable.
I have two server bothing behaving in exactly the same way, so I don't believe it's a hardware fault.
Has anyone had a similar experince? How did you resolve the problem?

Playing with creating different types of virtual machines. Creating the vm without a hard disk or NIC. Doesn't result in a BSOD.
I then added a IDE disk, the host bsoded 98% of the way through the "Create new virtualDiskDriver with new VHD" step. I'm leaning towards a driver issue with the Smart Array, I think
