It's very hard to say. There's nothing particularly conclusive in the logs. 
QEMU has definitely requested a reset as can be seen in 


but really no clue why. The most obvious reason would be a BSOD in the OS, but 
without catching it in the act there's not much we can tell.

IMO testing OS that are so massively out of date is probably not worthwhile. If 
there is any real problem then I'd expect it to manifest across multiple 
versions of Windows and so other tests should catch such an issue.
