I have followed answer from Linus from this question. I successfully install OS, but when I boot win I always get BSOD.

There's note about creating a second hardware profile in Windows. I did, but it didn't help. There's no option specify the hardware or the OS doesn't rescan hardware on boot.

What is the BSOD message? – Dave Sep 11 '12 at 13:06
@DaveRook Blue screen of Death (like Kernel panic in linux) – Rob Sep 11 '12 at 13:14
Yes... I know about the BSOD, but the point is the BSOD provides information and normally a message such as PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA. I want to know the message. Image:… – Dave Sep 11 '12 at 13:15
@DaveRook The screen just blinked and then the system has restarted. But it seems that BSOD text is stored in dump file on harddisk. Unfortunatelly I will have access to the machine in few hours. – Rob Sep 11 '12 at 13:21
You can also change this so it doesn't force restart: Go to control panel, System and Security link, System link, Advanced system settings, Locate the Startup and Recovery section and click on the Settings button. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart. – Dave Sep 11 '12 at 13:24
