RE: [Xen-devel] Win2003 got blue Screen when ballooning with serial out put: "Iomem mapping not permitted"
If the frontend GPL PV storport driver is not ignoring block write failures in
crashdump mode then you are unlikely the get a good dump from the ballooned
As for the original crash, I guess the balloon driver is just not handling the
populate hypercall failure gracefully.
