Windows 7: BSOD while trying to install Windows 7

BSOD while trying to install Windows 7

I have a:

Toshiba Satelite P205-S7806

Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2330 @1.6GHz
RAM 2.00 GB
OS: 32 bit

Install starts just fine (from windows 7 disk). Upon first restart it loads to the Windows 7 startup screen. Next comes the BSOD! It contains the following errors:

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

This happens if I upgrade of try to install on a blank partition. Most Google searches tell me to change my SATA config in BIOS. Not sure if this is my problem or not, but I have no such settings in my BIOS. What step should I take next?

Note: This computer was running Windows 7 at one point before (about a year ago). Hard drive crashed while in Iraq. I sent it back home to a computer shop and they replace my hard drive (and gave me Vista! ). Aside from the hard drive, everything else is stock.

No DMP files in upload please try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

OK, I attempted to enable minidumps. After clicking small memory dump (and making sure it was going to the right directory) i clicked OK twice and then rebooted. Upon reboot, there is no minidump folder and minidumps are no longer enabled. Did this several times with the same result.

Even enabling it through the registry yields the same result. Upon restart it goes back to the way it was.
