Boot to DVD. Start installation process over.

Agreed. Let us know what happens.

Also, are you using Custom>Advanced tools to delete all partitions (you don't want) create new ones (as you wish) and format the one you install 7 to?

Does that Acer have any known problem with drivers on previous installs or OS?

Hopefully there will be someone who knows what can bluescreen Windows 7 on boot up after install.

Ok I thought you said first restart during install, which means it wasn't fully installed. Now I understand it is blue screening at the Windows 7 boot animation. Correct?

So you took out ram, vid card and it started up regularly, or in safe mode?

Did you put each one back in separately to find out which was causing the blue screen?

Why don't you try booting in safe mode and reinstalling the video driver? note the exact driver in Device Manager, then uninstall and restart. if it bluescreens again, boot back into safe mode and install another driver from the ATI support page for that ATI card.

Once you determine it is vid card and not bad ram, then boot into safe mode with networking and see if you can pull a driver off windows update that was going to be delivered anyway, as frequently happens right after install. The 64 bit driver in the installer may have already been updated for your Acer and would have already been delivered by Updates if it had started up like it should.

What brand of memory? OCZ? Do you know exact model?

A bios update and/or voltage tweak might be in store for this.

Bios update is always good under any circumstance.
