Hardware:
17"MacBookPro(Laptop) 8GB,
running under bootcamp:
VMWare - Win7Pro64.

Will only run Win7 in safe mode!!!
When I try to run Win in normal mode... I get my logon page (but with 3 thick vertical blue lines). After login on password is entered, Win7 tries to load then I get Blue Screen of Death - dumping memory.

Only option after this happens is to start Win in safe mode.

can't run bootcamp to bootup in OS(SnowLeap)....???

Boot into safe mode, and open the event viewer. Look at the error associated with the BSOD.

Try starting in normal mode to cause the BSOD. Keep an eye on the time the BSOD occurs. Each error in the event viewer has a time stamp on it. If possible, narrow the logs down to one error based on the time of the BSOD. The only one you mentioned that might be related to a startup BSOD, is 7001, but try to verify that.

Try uninstalling your graphics adapter in safe mode then restart.

If it starts, reinstall graphics drivers.
