BSOD on 2nd XenDesktop machine to start using vDisk

Ok, I have a new vDisk that I captured.  I then pushed out several machines using PVS.  I am booting them to a custom ISO, each with a different IP (No DHCP).

I can't get more than one or two of them up at a time.  After that the others will get a BSOD when they go through the Windows 7 Splash screen.

If I shut down the working ones, then the others will work.

vDisk is set to Cache on Server, XD 7.1, vCenter 5.0 u3

One possibility - there is a specific Microsoft fix you need for VMWare 5.x.  If you don't include it, the behavior you are describing could happen.
Citrix article - http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX125361
It references a hotfix from Microsoft that deals with the various OS's.

I have never used static IP's with PVS. As a test do you still have problem if you switch to using DHCP?

Also, have you read this article yet...http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX137820

May be a bug in PVS with static IP's...

No DHCP available unfortunately.  Looking at the other article though.

That fixed the starting issue.  Unfortunately now only 1 or two will register with the Machine Catalog at a time.
