If you switch to VC4 when the error occurs (press cntl-alt-f4), see if there are any IDE or hard drive errors and write them down and attach here.

Although the bug was marked as a duplicate no way to resolve the problem has been put forth. The duplicate bug is still open although the submitter has solved the problem by installing a new hard drive. I have not solved this problem in this manor and would like to keep the bug open.

Is this still a problem with current releases?
