I seem to be having a major problem using Hyper-V networking and the Intel LAN chipset that comes on my motherboard. To setup networking to my Virtual Machines on Hyper-V, I have to configure a virtual network switch. The minute I set it up with the Intel LAN connection, Windows 8 freezes and goes into the infamous Blue Screen Of Death with a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION . After rebooting, my login will freeze with the same error. The only way I can recover is a System Restore.
Has anyone experienced this issue and has a workaround to configure networking to their Hyper-V VMs with the i217-V LAN chip?
I am also experiencing the same issue with the same LAN chip. Did you, or anyone else for that matter, manage to find a fix/work-around?
NB: If the Ethernet cable is unplugged windows 8 boots fine, else it will just loop BSOD.
