n/a KB73551 Issue: Host IPS 8.0 installation fails after Host IPS 7.0 NDIS driver removal.

Resolution: The Host IPS 8.0 Patch 1 and Patch 2 installers have been modified to resolve any NDIS installation issues. See the KnowledgeBase article for further details.
727398 n/a Issue: If Host IPS 8.0 Patch 1, which contains a 14.4.0 version of the core drivers, is installed to the system when installing Patch 2, a system crash might occur due to a problem in the 14.4.0 core. This patch upgrades the core drivers to version 15.0.0, but the issue might still occur because the 14.4.0 drivers are still in memory and might cause the system to crash during shutdown.

Workaround: This issue is fixed in the 15.0.0 core. Once the system restarts, it should not experience this issue because the 15.0.0 drivers load properly after the restart.
