Intel Xeon 5500 series Blue Screen with Hyper-V (Win2K8 R2)

From the KB:

  • A computer is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and has the Hyper-V role installed.
  • This computer has one or more Intel CPUs code-named Nehalem installed. For example, the Nehalem CPU for a server is from Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and for a client is from Intel Core-i processor series.
In this scenario, you receive the following Stop error message:

0x00000101 (parameter1, 0000000000000000, parameter3, 000000000000000c)

CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

Writing again?!

I has been a long time since I wrote. A lot of things happening, but none of them can explain my absence.

It’s going to be a real challenge trying to write again, but I feel that I have no choice. I decided , as a resolution,
to write at least two posts per month…
