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...

Coralon,  We did indeed apply that.

comp,
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.
