Beware Windows 7 and NEW AMD 7000 CPU's

I am a tech for a small firm in the southern UK just thought I'd let people know as I ahve been testing windows seven (and liking it) I brought in a new machine just for the purpose of "playing / Experimenting" with it everything is a fairly standard machine except the wholesalers convinced me to try the new 7000 range CPU's.

I have tried to install both 32 bit and 64 bit trying the newest available and the older versions both as dual boot and as a stand alone and it just will not install giving a BSOD during the install very similar to a memory one but stating there is a hardware problem, I am trying one last idea i.e. a upgrade before giving up but I shouldn't have to.

But I thought I'd warn people.

From the looks of this guy on another forum, that statement should not be true..

AMD 64 X2 7750 Black
ASRock N61P-S
4GB G.Skill DDR2 1066
CoolerMaster 650watt PSU, (about 2 years old)
2x 74GB Raptor drives in Raid0 with a Silicon Image 3132 raid card
XFX GTS 250
Windows 7, build 7000

He's up & running no problem but has another issue unrelated to the CPU.
I think we need to look at other possibilities here, what was the BSOD message and stop error code please?

mm very suspicious getting a similar message with a vista install on same machine!!

stop code on that is 0x0000007E (0x800000003,0x894626CC,0x8DB2E52C,0x8DB2E228)

Seems we have another hardware issue other than the CPU eh Owl..
Try the vanilla install route and see what you get, could be a dodgy stick of RAM in there.

Nope wasn't Ram was the CPU in a roundabout way

Brand new Board seeing the CPU as what it is but required a BIOS update OK sorted that
