Windows 7: BSOD when attempting to clean install Win7 64bit Professional

BSOD when attempting to clean install Win7 64bit Professional

Good people of Seven Forums,

The last two days have been Geek Hell for me. I finally upgraded everything in my system, and to naturally take advantage of my 16GB's of DDR3 RAM (Oh joy, oh redundant joy!) I wanted to install Win7 64Bit Pro which I got from my college and have burned on a CD, complete with Key and everything.

My previous PC build worked super-fine under Win7 32bit and I double checked th DVD of Win7 64bit just to make sure it was operational and fine.

Well, I go into BIOS, set my boot options for DVD, since I only have the one blank hard drive in the new PC.

Slam-bang. BOSD the precise second the "Starting Windows" graphics appear. It says "Loading Files" once really fast and twice, loading in increments from the DVD and then, without fail or mercy BOSD (I attached the files as per your directions). The insane thing is, after double checking and solo-checking every last component of my PC, I found them all to be in top form. Desperate I took the machine to service ( A huge disgrace for a hardcore nerd) where they told me that it was simply a matter of me having left in my old sata 2 HDD (right...) and simply removed it, told me they'd installed win7 and uninstalled from DVD without problems (didn't ask if it was 64 bit, in hindsight, that would have been crucial) and gave it back to me.

Imagine my unholy terror and geeky dismay, when, all hopeful, I fired up the installation and got the SAME BSOD. In utterly impotent nerd-rage I called up Service and they suggested that maybe I "had a faulty DVD"? Even though I knew that wasn't the case, I was at the end of my rope. I had my old 32bit Windows disc, so I tried installing those from DVD.

And it worked.

Without fail and perfectly.

No matter what I try with 64bit though, ends in death and tears.

My PC is an Intel i5-2500K, ASUS Z68 Mobo, 16GB Ram, 560Ti GTX and the such...you get the idea. Currently I'm set up with Win32bit, so as to have access to my computer and hopefully solve this.

ANY insights would be greatly appreciated! I tried looking for similar problems around the net but didn't really find anything pertinent or cohesive...

Thank you for your time and patience with reading this!

No DMP's were included

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.

If you are overclocking STOP

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:
Quote:
* 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:
Quote:
* 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.

Problem solved and case closed and as usual, it was ridiculous, someone may want to use it for future reference.

Apparently, my .iso burner of Win7 was defective. The drive read it perfectly well and it was perfectly navigable under Windows. The DVD was brand new. Nothing gave the impression of a faulty disc and yet when, in my despair I tried burning a new copy and booting with that, it all worked according to plan, no more BSODS.
