Stop error message after you add a new device that supports MSI-X interrupts on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008: “0x0000007E”

On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you add a new device that supports MSI-X interrupts. However, after you do this, you occasionally receive the following Stop error message:

Stop 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Note: The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the computer’s configuration.

This problem may occur when a Plug and Play (PNP) resource rebalance occurs. A PNP resource rebalance may be triggered in many scenarios. For example, this behavior may occur when you install the driver for a device that supports MSI-X interrupts, or when you restart the computer after you install a new MSI-X supported device.
