Brand new x99 & i7 build and getting BSOD upon final installation

I just built a brand new Asrock x99m Extreme4 & Intel i7 5820k, EVGA 970 GTX with Dell u3415w and 16g of ram.

Trying to install win7 64 and it gets to the final step of installtion and then BOOM BSOD

I've had nothing but issues with win7 for the last 6 months, on my old build continually crashing and now this brand new high end build and it still wont install.

What info is needed to find out what the problem is and how can I fix it so I can install win7?

Let`s start from scratch.

Where did you get the Windows 7 installer from ?

What are you installing to, an ssd, or a hard drive ?

Is it new, old, how old ?

I have an official Backup disc of Windows 7 Pro

It worked perfectly for the first 6 years but the last 6 months it was crashing my old system when it did updates.

I've not built a new computer and this is happening upon final installation.

It is a Samsung 850 Pro 256g SSD that I've used Samsung Secure erase to bring it back to factory settings for setup/install on my new system.

Hi,
Not sure why you would be using older media when all oem/ system builder copies of win-7 come with a dvd and activation key :/
All dvd's degrade after a while.

Not sure what can be done can you get to a point where you're on the desktop ?

You mean upon the final stage of the installation?
Do you have any other old (already partitioned and now unaltered) HDD connected to the system other than the SSD?

If the answer to the above questions are positive .... then ...

Can you boot into the BIOS, search throughout the BIOS for the term UEFI, and wherever it is UEFI set it to LEGACY and try the installation again?

Let us know.

I'm not sure what you mean by using older media? I have a windows 7 Pro backup disc and an activation key - it's what I've always had and always used.

And no I can't even get to the desktop and yes I get the BSOD during the final stage of installation.

Suggestions?

Another HDD that is previously formatted conned with this computer during the installation.

How many disks are there in the computer?

Not sure what Asrock does differently but I recently installed win-7 pro on a asus x99 sabertooth and it went without any issues at the default bios setting

So the issue must be with the installer or as stated by Arc the hard drive so is it new or been used before ?

Also not sure what you mean by saying the dvd is a backup
Use the dvd that came with the key.

Are you sure it's a 64 bit installation disk ?

The new boards are UEFI by default. So there remains a chance that the primary disc is formatted as GPT (chance I said, depending how the installer is used). In UEFI+GPT, as and when a MBR formatted disc will be discovered, it will not work any more. And it is the final stage of installation when it is detected, and everything stops working.
I also experienced the same, and recovered. Two ways I found. Either set the BIOS to Legacy or convert the existing discs to GPT.

I am pointing to any possible MBR disc (already existing), mate. It may be totally healthy one, but will be mismatch in the situation.
