Windows 7: Cannot get a clean install x64 win7

Cannot get a clean install x64 win7

Hi Guys
A month of headaches with my new build led me here, I just can't get a clean install!
The first install did not go well but after a few attempts it booted and was working, I was 7.9 all the way but was plagued by core windows program faults, simple things like windows explorer would fail, internet explorer etc things that should just work. I tried a few more installs but always got failure at 18% expanding files, I stripped the pc down and rebuilt swapping the moduals and just using minimum hardware. Trying to keep this as shrt as possible. I began to doubt the SSD, It looks like data is being corrupted during install, but I may be wrong. Fail reports tell me files are corrupted but not always the same ones. I tried to install to other HD's, three in all but still same issue, I have tried fresh installs and also upgrade installs, formatting and reallocating makes no difference. I also updated sata, chipset and bios, tried a different copy of windows 7, Today I bought a new optical drive and swapped out the sata cables. I got past 18% but got bluescreen after reboot before 19%. The best I have had is windows is finalising installation and it crashes after the reboot. I thnk I tried just about everything I know but now I have to hand over to the experts I have read about in here. Sorry for the long post.

Is this referring to the memory modules? The memory is what I would suspect in your situation. Are you sure you have the correct memory modules for your mobo?

Are you running stock speed and voltage or have you attempted any OCing?

Thanks strollin,
I was refering to the memory modules, Yes I was advised that this memory was suitable for the V-Pro, and 1,600 is listed as suitable in the user guide.

Im just running the build at stock no reason to overclock

The issues is almost always the installer. Download the latest official installer with SP1 to burn to DVD or write to flash stick from Steps 1 and 2 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If DVD fails, try writing to flash stick.

Thanks Gregrocker,
Sounds like that might work, but I have no idea where to get this installer, I looked on MS website but see nothing specffic abut installing the OS.

Perhaps you could post a link for the software?

Here is the link to the iso. You will need to put your product key in after it is installed.

Sorry about that. This is a Microsoft site. Give it a try.
Microsoft Store Online

You don't have to buy anything, just use your product key after install.
