Windows 7: Clean Install Problems

A good deal of the problems people run into are either a bad dimm or when adding a mix of simms, dimms, sodimms, whatever some type of mismatch. I've also seen where a weak battery on a rather new board saw memtest report a ton of errors for two separate sets of dimms later to be found in perfect working condition.

The key word is never rule anything out entirely! You first need to isolate the problem each step at a time.

Thought I'd give you all an update as now my problem is solved!!
Thanks for you advice.

I had two issues..
1.) One stick of my RAM was bad. Ran Memtest and it proved faulty. Got it replaced by the computer store.

Tried to install Windows 7 again and it hung but I got a different message..

2.) I was dumb. For some reason I hooked my DVD-RW to the internal e-SATA port on the motherboard. I switched it to the standard SATA ports and all worked flawlessly.


Thanks again guys.
Now running Windows 7 X64 in RAID0 on my Raptors.

Glad to hear you have that all sorted out. At least now you'll know enough to take things a little slower the next time around to see working results. It's all part of the learning process once you get into custom building and the like!

Well the sad thing is this is about the 6th system I've built. Plus I usually end up overclocking my systems and tweaking them until they are "just right" . When they crash I know that it's probably because I pushed it too far.

The problem with a new build this is I don't take my time as now it seems "old hat".
I have never really ran into any issues on a new build so I got frustrated easily this time around and didn't think it out.

Again thanks for everyone's help on this. Looks like I found a good community of people here so I figure I'll stay a bit.

Looks like someone just won the lottery twice LOL. Memory is by far the most likely piece of hardware to fail. It takes some people awhile to figure that out.
