The system becomes unresponsive when you hot-unplug a device from the PCI Express interface on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, a Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express interface is available that supports hot-plugging. However, when you hot-unplug a device from the PCI Express interface, the system becomes unresponsive.

Additionally, a CPU internal error (IERR) occurs. If the computer is equipped with an IERR LED, the IERR LED flashes.

Note: An IERR is an unrecoverable internal CPU error. Processors do not execute any instructions until the system restarts.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
