Welcome to the forums, henkotso
Besides only one memory stick, you might want to strip your system of all non-critical devices, such as the video card (if you have onboard video) or the other HDD. Your problem could be related to several things, from the memory voltage to the PS power. Also, have you tried to load the specific drivers for your HDD during installation? That might help
Good luck and keep us posted
