Windows BSOD Problem

Hello, recently i had a issue which forced me to reformat and reinstall windows but every time i almost get into the Installation screen i BSOD and cant install/repair or anything. If i try and let it boot from the HDD i get the Boot Manager is missing or corrupted error. So i literally cant get into windows nor can i install windows. I am at a loss for what to do right now, i have tested other HDD's but come up with the same problem time and time again, on a few HDD"s that i was testing were from a friends work which were already preloaded with Windows XP (i am using Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit) it loads till the login screen then shuts off my keyboard, but when i try to format/install Win 7 on that HDD i get the BSOD problem again. Help would be very much appreciated. Also just to clarify i keep getting the "STOP: c0000 21a Fatal System Error" error no matter what HDD i use. I have also tested each piece of the comp on seperate systems as well, and they all work "mobo, memory, psu, cpu, gpu all work"

I already read that but i cant get my computer to even start so i cant download and run that. I can never make it past the "Starting Windows" screen. When i try to get to the Windows 7 Install screen, it loads the files from the CD and makes it to the "Starting Windows" screen where the 4 windows logos fly in, the shortly after that screen it BSOD with a
STOP: c000021a 0xc0000001 0x001003f0

Which i am not sure how to fix. I found a post that someone said they had this problem and found out that their cpu heatsink was not on properly making the cpu overheat but i have already made sure that it was seated properly and i had plenty of thermal paste (not too much or too little) so im not sure what to do at this point.

No, i cant boot to anything, the only time i can boot is if i put my friends work hdd in that has Windows XP installed on it but my keyboard and mouse turn off so i cant log in, but no matter what hdd i put in i cant format and install a Windows 7 64 bit on any of them. Prior to having to reformat i have had Windows 7 64 bit for about 9 months with no problems whatsoever until now. Roomate's PC stopped booting and wouldnt even show POST screen, so she got a new computer and she said i could have her Evga Nvidia GTX 285 that was in it for a upgrade from my asus radeon hd 6670. When i placed it in, turned my computer on and about 15 seconds after i turned it on it shut down. Since then i have not been able to boot any hdd or format/install Windows on any hdd i have tried. Also tried replacing my memory but that seemed to make no difference, also tried replacing mobo to no success. (also i have stopped using the gtx 285 and went back to my 6670).

P.S. I just got it to format and install Windows XP 32 Bit, but i tried a copy of Windows 7 32 bit as well and the XP has no problem loading, but every copy 32/64 Windows 7 gives me the BSOD before i get to the install screen, but the Windows XP has no problem installing at all. Im at a loss of why this is, my computer is more than capable of handling Windows 7 64 Bit...

What is the source of the installation media? Original DVD or a copy?

It could be an overheating issue, can you boot into BIOS and check your temperatures?

I boot from an Original Windows 7 Home 64bit disc.

I don't "think" its an overheating issue, i finally got into Windows XP 32 bit, just had to put a PS2 keyboard in to get into friends work hdd, and it has been running for 2 days now, then i formatted it and installed my original Windows XP 32 bit and it loads just fine but i still no matter what i do can install my original Windows 7 Home 64 bit for some reason which i would desperately like to do so i can use all 8gb of memory i have. I ordered a new Western Digital Black 1TB 64mb cache drive and it gets here this Monday, will try it on that when it gets here but would still love to be able to install Win 7 64bit on my WD 500GB Blue drive if at all possible.

In BIOS, is the controller set to AHCI?
