BSOD after converting Microsoft Windows 2003 to Virtual Machine

PROBLEM:
BSOD after converting Microsoft Windows 2003 to Virtual Machine.
Blue Screen of Death after P2V on Dell Server.

SOLUTION:
Physical server being build with the Dell OpenManage or HP Smart Start CD.

Seems this method of OS install sets a registry key that conflicts with the Integration Services install.

The key in question is:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Wdf01000\Group] = Base
changing the key to "WdfLoadGroup" and rebooting the VM allowed the Integration Services to install successfully.
