i, too, am having issues with a 0X0000008E BSOD and a 1000008E error report. i *think* i've narrowed it down, but it's an odd bod.
X41 Tablet, brand spanking new; completely wiped to set up and image (so new Tablet XP, all original drivers and most pre-installed sw, school district software added). Tested fine as a tablet -- *before Novell 4.9sp2 installed*.
Captured the sans-Novell version; installed Novell -- worked fine as a laptop and with the stylus *until the display was rotated*. Half-minute after rotation, BSOD with the above STOP error; restart back to Novell login. Login is rotated to the last orientation before BSOD. Will stay that way forever, unless you start punching the rotate-display button, when it will rotate a couple times then BSOD with the identical error.
So the physical display panel doesn't need to be rotated; it will BSOD if left in default configuration and the rotate-display button invokes re-orientation.
It seems to be Novell. However, since this is still required for the majority of the potential users of this model, it's a bit of a pain!
Microsoft's KB316424 suggest checking driver versions to ensure that they are XP compatible; the only one that didn't follow their "All Windows XP drivers should be version 5.1.2600 or later" rule was the pen & tablet button driver. However, it does work just peachy as long as Novell is not installed. i can't find any display driver that seems to be specific to the ability to rotate the display.
Anyone know of any issues with Novell & XP Tablets?
