Windows 7: BSOD storport.sys in Windows 7 setup

BSOD storport.sys in Windows 7 setup

Hi there,

I have a problem when installing Windows 7 x64 Enterprise. I boot from the DVD, the files are copied on my hard drive, then the setup loads and a BSOD appears : IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL for file storport.sys.

Here is my PC specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe
4 gb DDR2 OCZ
2 x 250 gb HDD SATA stripping
Geforce GTS 450

Here is what I tried :
1. Use a different dvd (Windows 7 x64 Home premium) but same problem.
2. Remove 2 gb of RAM : I don't have the BSOD but the setup loads infinitely
3. Reset the BIOS settings to system defaults
4. Start the setup from OS (Win Vista x64) and start from bootable DVD
5. Delete my stripping arrays and use the HDD normally

Any idea of something new I can try?

Some other infos
- Vista x64 installed- Try to install Windows 7 x64 Enterprise form MSDN web site
- Bough my PC 4-5 years ago
- I have formatted the C drive then reinstalled Vista about 6 months ago
