Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery.
Automatic restart is checked by default. If you uncheck it, you get NT4
style BSoD behavior. Even with automatic restart, it still writes the
details to the syslog.
I see the new default behavior as an advantage. If the machine crashes
it reboots and the services get started at boot time. If it just sits at
BSoD, then the machine is basically down.
