OSD - storfit.sys Windows 7

I am attempting to deploy Windows 7 x64 Enterprise to a Hyper-V virtual machine using OSD/PXE.  The deploy task sequence completes successfully, but when the deployed VM reboots, I get the following error:

File: \WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\storflt.sys
Status: 0xc0000359
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

I have tried deploying the VM with both a OSD capture image and the install image.  Both images generate this error.  I have tried starting the deployed VM in safe mode and still get this error.

I know from research that storflt.sys is a virtual storage filter driver for Windows Server 2008 used by Hyper-V guests.  However, when I check the reference Windows 7 VM for the captured image, that driver is not present in C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS.

I am running ConfigMgr 2007 R2 on W2K8 R2.  Hyper-V is fully patched RTM version.

Anybody have any ideas on this error?

In our virtual environment we ran;
sc config storflt start= disabled

to fix the servers with that error.

Hope that helps,
Jeff
