Windows 7: Tried installing SoLar's 7260 .iso but i get BSOD

Tried installing SoLar's 7260 .iso but i get BSOD

Hi,

I've been reading the threads, great info here.

I have a Gigabyte MB with AMD 2+ chip and 3GB of RAM, on board video and no cards installed or any peripherals attached. I have a SATA HD connected and am running XP and tried to do a clean install of the .iso that solar put up yesterday of Windows 7 build 7260 32bit (7260.0.x86fre.win7_rtm.090612-2110.client_en-us.ultimate.SoLoR-custom.iso).

When I boot from DVD windows loads the setup files, i then see the windows icon appear, then i hear a sound from my PC and get the Blue Screen of Death.

My error message says:
"Stop: c000021a {fatal system error}

The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc000012f 0x001003a8)

The system has been shut down."

Not sure if it is a BIOS thing or if I need to install with my sata drivers (i can't now because i don't have a floppy).

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

So there are two possibilities:

1) The DVD is not burned right and there is a error reading some files

2) Your computer is not compatible with Windows 7 or has something wrong (memory, bios, ...)

To eliminate the first possibility a solution is to put the Windows 7 on an USB flash drive and boot from your computer with it. So we will know if it was a bad DVD.
There is tutorials on this forum or others to explain how to make a USB Flash drive bootable with Windows 7.

okay, i made a bootable USB key and tried that, i get the same error message from my first post. So it appears it is my hardware. What do you suggest?

Hi silvervan1986, Why do you have to boot from a dvd in the first place.

the same thing is happening with me. I thought it would be my download problem but I have downloaded it with different source and the same error is coming. In my case I have tried to install from bootable USB drive and error shown was : can't copy the "pshell.dll" file. Not found. and stops installation.

I have tried it to upgrade my previous Windows 7 b7229 running the setup file from my HDD and same error message came to me.
