Windows 7: BSOD when installing Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) checked build

BSOD when installing Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) checked build

Hi guys,

I am trying to install the checked build version of Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) but I am receiving a BSOD with,

"STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000420, 0x8A115A15, 0x89B86628, 0x89B86150)"

even before the installation GUI is shown. The technical information message also shows,

"ACPI.sys - Address 8A115A15 base at 8A0C9000, DateStamp 4ce78f21".

I have the free build version of Windows 7 Ultimate N (64-bit) installed on the same setup, but on a different hard drive, without any problems. I am using the following hardware,

Intel DH55TC motherboard,
Intel Core i5 650 processor
4 GB RAM.

After reading some articles on the internet I tried the following without any success :
Using only one RAM module during installation, as suggested by some.
Connecting only one hard drive during installation, as suggested by some.
Checked that the cooling system on the CPU is in good condition, as suggested by some.
Disabling ACPI in BIOS but the system does not allow it.
Disabling ACPI in Windows but apparently that can't be done for Windows 7.

I also read, at Win 7 checked build installation problem on DG41WV, that the Intel DG41WV motherboard produced similar messages prior to installation.

Does my DH55TC board support checked build versions of Windows? Any help will be much appreciated!

Do you have a known good installer for the Checked Build version? How was it burned to DVD or written to flash stick?

Try wiping the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.

Reset BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI, unplug all other drives and peripherals.

You may also need to supply SATA controller drivers to overcome the BSOD: Checked and Free Build Differences (Windows Drivers)

Thanks for the help!

I downloaded the Windows 7 (32-bit) debug/checked build version image (ISO) from MSDN. I trust this is a good installer. After the download I burned the ISO to a DVD using "ISO2Disc" (http://www.top-password.com/iso2disc.html) and wrote the ISO to a flash stick using "ISO to USB" (ISO to USB). Both options produce the BSOD.

I tried your suggestion of first wiping the HD with the Diskpart clean command, but the BSOD still persists before installation.

I tried resetting the BIOS and setting the SATA controllers to AHCI, but the installation still fails. I am also sure the BIOS is up to date as I checked this before attempting the installation.

Try burning DVD with ImgBurn at 4x speed, or writing to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu.

I'd also try IDE mode and inserting SATA controller drivers, first in AHCI mode.

I tried your suggestion of using Universal USB installer but the BSOD was still waiting.

I also tried the IDE mode but with no success.

I have decided to take the easy way out and install the checked build version on a different setup. It worked . I was able to install the checked build version on two other systems, without any trouble, using the installation DVD that I burned with ISO2Disk so I don't think the burning application was the problem. I think the problem lies with the Intel motherboard...

Just for interest sake. I was able to install the free build version of Windows on the system with the Intel motherboard but not the checked build version.

Thanks for your help in any case!

Settings changes which allow install might then be found in BIOS setup, if at all.
