Hi Thomas,

Looks like Windows 7 crashes in the "Windows Driver Foundation" with an 
illegal memory access. Possibly this is due to an incomplete ACPI 
implementation for the board.

Please have a look at the kontron/986lcd-m ACPI code for a modular 
sample implementation that can boot Windows 7 and
