Have you messed around with the hard drive you mentioned in the first post since you got that STOP 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000) error?
Yes they are being recognized properly, and I have also tried the 0x7b drive, and I still get the same error message.

This is really starting to get confusing, I have never seen this before...
edit: also safe mode stops at disk.sys if it helps...
Can you tell us what your 'Bare Essentials' are?
Sometimes there is something overlooked, like a sound card or USB hub, ect.
Try switching to the other RAM card in a different slot on the motherboard, only one RAM card installed when loading the OS. Tell us which motherboard slot you are using.
Try a different graphics card.
These methods have been successful in some cases.
Re-loading the OS on your USB stick, as Greg mentioned, is a good idea as well, the files may have become corrupt.
If you check page 2 writhziden tells me to strip it down to the bare essentials, which are:
one RAM module, the CPU, motherboard, one hard disk, one graphics card (or use onboard graphics if you have it), keyboard, mouse, and one monitor.
I disconnected everything else from the computer.
I am pretty sure the usb is fine, as I recently used it to install windows on my laptop (which I am typing this on).
I have tried to move the ram to a different slot, and remove one of them, but I still get the same result.
The ram is in slot A1.
