But since I ran into that EXACT problem today I wanted to post what I had found.

If you read through that series of posts you see that the person wasn't able to install what seems to be a newer 1394 driver.

What happened to me is my dev machine Mobo died so I moved my hard drive to a similar machine where it booted ok but the 1394 support was different. So the installed driver on my hard drive wasn't compatible anymore.

What worked for me was to go back to the W7 WDK install that 1394 driver, then run the windbg from the later WDk/SDK. Worked like a charm - seems like the later debugger version don't care what driver is installed as long as one is. UNder the W7 WDK there was actually a directory of 1394 drivers, so you might simply be able to plop that driver on and not have to do the WDK install.

Hope this helps someone!

Jim
