BSOD fresh win7-64 install 0x00000124

Hello,

Yesterday I bought new PC, and the problem start when I try to install OS.
I have legel key but no disc, so I download win7 64-bit ultimate from digitalriver serwers, create bootable iso and install system. Then it started constantly crashes when I try to install drivers or copy big files from one disk to another. The error I keep getting was BSOD 0x00000124. I unplugged and plugged everything again, run chkdisk, test RAM with memtest86 and check voltage and temperatures but everything was fine. Of course I tried reinstall system, download iso again, try to use iso from Home Premium or install not from usb but burn iso on dvd - the same problem. What's strange, everytime I get errors when I tried use windows update. Once it won't even open, once it keep getting diffirent errors and constantly crashes when I try to install updates. Even when I activate it with legal key. It shouldn't be hardware fault, because I install newest Tomb Raider game, and it run smoothly for two hours - but when I open the web browser I got instant crash.

Worker from computer shop said it's probably errors that I get from installing OS from custom dvd/usb and I should try the original disc. Problem is I have original key from ultimate and I don't buy another one just for original disk. Someone know what to do?

I attached lasted BSOD dump

A STOP 0x124 points to a hardware error. To look at your logs we'll need you to upload them to the forum, follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

As is usually the way with 0x124s your logs are giving nothing away as to what the cause is. I've outlined some steps to take to test your system's hardware below, you'll have to follow each step to rule out every single piece of hardware.

Before that though uninstall Daemon Tools, a proven cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and perform the following steps.
3. Double click the executable to open it.
4. Click the button shown below.



If the button it is grayed out as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system and you can just close the window.


If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.

Run all the test and there's no errors.
Deamon unistalled, nothing was overclocked, bios reseted to default, installed newest drivers and bios for mobo and graphic card. Still the same problem, still getting errors when trying to do windows updates.
