Installing Windows 7 64bit from USB - error 0xc0000001

I am trying to install window 7 from a usb. It get to the loading windows files screen but right after that i get the 0xc0000001 error. Failed to load winload.exe.
Motherboard - ASUS A8AE-LE
Hard Drive - Wester Digital IDE

AMD Athlon 64 (939 chip)

I've tried 3 different Flash Drives, 5 different Hard Drive. Cant load from CD/DVD drive because when I boot the system with the CD/DVD drive installed i get the Blue screen of death.

I've used that. the diskpart tool, and universal USB Installer (Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux)

Strange and you get a BSOD by using the CD-drive. I think that there is something wrong with your BIOS. is the latest bios version?

Follow the steps given here, same as for retail: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If it fails again using the official ISO with USB download tool then wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command from installer's System Recovery Options Command line.

I cant update the BIOS because i cant get into any OS. Even when trying to boot off of a windows recovery disk that doesn't have an OS on it. Tried booting into Ubuntu and got a different error. I tried boot to the USB with no HD installed and still got an error. The only thing i can do is get into the bios.

A faulty RAM can also give out this error.

If you have more than one stick, try with one at a time.

If one is faulty, the error will repeat.

Reset the BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

While in BIOS setup set HD drive to boot first, Save settings, reboot.

Now try booting the Win7 installer using the one time BIOS Boot Menu key under USB, Removable or HD's.
