Is your OS WinXp sp2? If so,

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906866

Quote:
This problem occurs because the Mup.sys driver assumes that there must be no more than three file-system filter drivers running at the same time. The Mup.sys driver handles Distributed File System (DFS) file I/O requests. If there are four or more file system filter drivers, the I/O request packet (IRP) location buffer that is pre-allocated by Mup.sys will overflow. When this occurs, you receive the Stop error that is described in the Symptoms section.

On a computer that is running Windows XP with SP3, do not install this hotfix. This hotfix is inclued in Windows XP with SP3.
On a computer that is running Windows XP with SP2, install this hotfix or a service pack that resolves this issue.

After you install this hotfix or Service Pack 3 that includes this fix, modify the
DfsIrpStackSize registry entry. To do this, follow these steps:


Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mup\Parameters
In the right pane, right-click DfsIrpStackSize, and then click Modify.

Note If the DfsIrpStackSize registry entry does not exist, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
Type DfsIrpStackSize, and then press ENTER.
In the Base box, click Decimal, type 10 in the Value data box, and then click OK.

Notes
A value of 10 allows for a maximum of eight file system filter drivers.
The default value of the DfsIrpStackSize registry entry is 5. A value of 5 allows for a maximum of three file system filter drivers.
If you set the value to a number that is greater than 10, the value is automatically set back to 5.
If you do not apply this hotfix, the DfsIrpStackSize registry value is ignored.
Exit Registry Editor.

Go through the following steps until the BSOD issue resolved
1) Install windows updates if any
2) Update your iOS, itune and iPad driver(if any) to the latest version
3) Run LinX for 20 runs and see if it pass
4) Try Memtest 86+ (If failed, check your RAM's frequency/timing/voltage settings in BIOS)
5) Reinstall OS
6) ( http://support.microsoft.com/ ) if you are using a legal copy....

1). Yes
2). Yes
3). Fail on 8th run (after 2mins)
4). Pass complete, no errors
5 & 6). Wait for 3 and 4 to pass before proceeding.

The fail in linx, what does that mean?

I suspect that the BSOD is due to incorrect settings of RAM. How many times did you run Memtest 86+ for? Try running it for at least 8 hours if you didn't do so.

If it failed the memory test, set the RAM's frequency/timing/voltage according to the specification MANUALLY in the BIOS. Otherwise(i.e. passed), try turning off the CPU power-saving features EIST, C1E & C3/C6(/C7) in the BIOS. Then, go through 3) & 4) again.

BTW, there's no need to go though step 5&6 if you can pass 20-run LinX and 8-hour memtest, because the BSOD shouldn't appear anymore thereafter.

Just a reminder, make sure that you download the latest drivers if you have to go through step 5.
