Windows 7: Error while installing Win7 64bit; 'Unexpected error'

Running memtest now, hopefully everything turns out alright.

Updating for the sake of updating:
I have one stick of RAM that I believe to be 100% okay.

I also have one mobo slot that could very possibly be entirely broken.
Memtest takes forever to run. :/

Are you following the steps in Jonathan's tutorial RAM - Test with Memtest86+ to test the sticks and slots (with known-good stick)?

As far as I can understand the instructions, yes.
So far:
Tested stick #1 in slots 1, 2, and 3; no errors except in slot 2, but slot 2 also fails when using sticks #2 and 3 as well.

Currently testing stick #1 in slot 4.

That said, I didn't have a stick of RAM in slot 2 to begin with, but my initial RAM test found errors, so I'm relatively certain that either stick #2 or 3 has errors as well.

Spec any new RAM closely using the computer or mobo maker's exact specs.

The good stick in the good slot?
As in, good stick in good slot + other sticks in the bad slot?

No, remove any confirmed bad sticks to RMA or replace.

Likewise avoid any bad slots. You'll need to confirm slot is bad then repair or avoid.

Ah. Lemme rephrase what I said earlier, then.

Tested: Slots 1-4
Failed: Slot #2, with all sticks of RAM
Passed: Stick #1, in slots 1 and 3, slot 4 currently pending.

As far as matching RAM to my mobo, it's sort of bothersome that none of my RAM is listed on http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...-ep45-ud3p.pdf
I don't think it's really that big of a deal that I'm mixing 400/800 MHz RAM, though I realize the 800MHz is getting downgraded to 400MHz.

....Maybe I should also look into buying new RAM? Hm.

Run for awhile with the tested-good RAM to see if problems persist.

I'd use the exact specs given for RAM by your mobo maker.

I've asked for some RAM expertise here.

Mmm. So finish the memtest with all sticks of RAM, then run with the good RAM to see if things are still crashing?
