At what step during Clean Install Windows 7 does this happen?

You must be much more interactive with us about the steps you are taking if you want to get this resolved. You've only given us feedback so far that makes no sense, and then refused to clarify when I asked you twice.

If you want me to continue helping you then answer every question and report back everything you are doing.

Okay. I did a fresh install of windows 7 with only 4gb of ram last night. Then when the computer was working right i put back in my other 8gb. then i turned on the computer and it stayed loading for 20min until i just gave up. then i did a system repair with windows 7 after hitting F8 on startup. the i got bluescreen 0x000000F4

Hope This Is Better!

Did you try again removing the other 8gb since it installed and was working correctly with only 4gb? Some of this RAM may be bad and need replacing.

You can test RAM - Test with Memtest86+ CD for 5-6 passes or overnight. Follow the steps in tutorial to isolate bad sticks or slots, then remove and either replace them or run without them. Do you really need 12gb RAM? For what?

Personally I would check your HDD.

Random restarts.......failed re-read from drive
Long start up............bad clusters.

0x000000F4..............very often hard drive related, so check power and data connections as well.

If you'd read how to test RAM - Test with Memtest86+ then you'd know it is done with a booted CD and not from Win7.

Test your HD using the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan followed by Disk Check from the booted Win7 DVD/Repair CD Command line in System Recovery Options.

If there is no HD repair CD available then use free Partition Wizard CD to Partition Wizard Check File System followed by Partition Wizard Partition surface test with both boxes checked.

Once you determine which RAM is defective and remove/replace it, if Win7 won't start after several Startup Repairs then wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command to run another Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. This time follow the steps closely to get it perfect.

If you had even read Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 you'd know one of the steps shows you how to rescue your files.

Why would you ask for our help here and then ignore steps we take the time to write out for you like they're not even there?

When you provide feedback showing you're actually doing the work then I can help you again.
