Is it still available?
Anyway, if sill happens with the latest balloon driver from http://download.lab.bos.redhat.com/devel/RHEV/virtio-win/1.1.5-0/
I would like to see the crash dump file.

It still happens with http://download.lab.bos.redhat.com/devel/RHEV/virtio-win/1.1.5-0/. dump file:

Comment 6 Vadim Rozenfeld 2010-06-23 09:19:55 UTC
But it looks like a crash in ataport (storage) stack, not in balloon.
Are you sure that it is the correct dump file?

Btw, was the balloon inflated or deflated at the time of testing?

Thanks again,

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints

the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address

as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.

Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard

coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted

/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have

hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...

If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the

system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is

Test in virtio-win-1.1.7-2 with winxp and win2k8-R2 guest, this issue does not exist. 
So, change this bug to verified.

Re-tested whql virtio balloon with the above driver. All guests passed.

So, I will change the status to VERIFIED.
