    Whatever partitioning software you installed to resize the Vista partition has drivers. I'm saying ya, I would delete those and then try to boot to see how it goes. But ya, other than that, it's just a guessing game without the dump file(s).

    Not off the top of my head, no, but Google might prove helpful with that. But if safe mode is giving the same bsod, that is not good because only "safe" drivers are loaded anyhow and something is seriously messed up beyond the point of any kind of easy return.

    That shows the driver creation dates and not the dates when they were installed to the machine.

    Are you absolutely sure safe mode bsods too?

    google didnt tell me

    i added space to windows 8 twice before, first time it only let me do it so there was like 38GB free on vista
    would it be worth trying to bring it back to the same size as before, i remember the size of vista drive... said 108.2GB in my computer

    Use Acronis instead of Easus, next time.

    You're unlikely to save that install, but since you've really got nothing to lose anyway, you could try deleting all those VirtualBox and VMWare drivers. Copy them elsewhere then delete them if you want, first, instead.
