    So, currently my 1564 is at 2 days and 10 minutes of up time. Seems to me the issue is solved and that VirtualBox was the cause.
    I still got "The IO operation at logical block address 6009d0 for Disk 1 was retried." twice in the event viewer in these 2 days. Other than that the event log is clean of errors & warnings. As usual a screenshot is attached.

    I'm gonna power her down now to put in the original secondary HDD which had also had a 2.5 day testrun in another pc. Here no errors/warnings were created in event viewer while it was being hammered by VirtualBox pretty much the whole time. (On a windows 7 pro x64 PC) This HDD luckily seems fine.

    Now I'll need to hunt down a good VirtualBox replacement!

    Airbot just posted that VirtualBox seems to be compatible for Windows 8. If you're feeling lucky, you might want to give this new version a try:

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll install VirtualBox ASAP and report back on how it does. I think they're referencing to the guest windows 8 in their logs though, and not the host OS.

    After about 11 hours of up time the same BSoD returned, want me to attach the minidump here? Or not needed?

    lol if you really did install VirtualBox again, even the new version you corrected my thinkings on, it's likely that. But lets have a look at the minidump! sure

    Yep I did installVirtualBox 4.1.10.76795 again to see if that fixed it, didn't help. Here's the minidump.

    Yep same bugcheck 133 that removing VirtualBox previously fixed:

    Code:
    [Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
    
    BugCheck 133, {0, 281, 280, 0}
    Oracle will probably have this straightened out in a few weeks is my guess. Maybe earlier.

    Just to let everyone know, I have also verified the AVG Anti-Virus & Internet Security Suite 2012 also cause this error. This was tested on three different machines with Windows 8 CP installed. As soon as these software packages were removed, the errors ceased.

    Not surprising. AVG is very notorious when it comes to bug checks.

    Thanks for the info and welcome!
