I changed it to a debug call, but it hangs there either way.

That panics with a keyboard error.

I didn't see the handler that much when I set the debugging to very verbose.

It gets farther.  It loads drivers off the CD, then blue screens with

STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I guess that narrows down where to look next.
