Hey guys I'm new to the forum but I've been struggling with the same problem for the last two days with RC1 both 32 and 64 bit...I may have made some headway in my case.
My system specs are:
MSI K9VGM-V mainboard
Athlon X2 3800+
2GB DDR2 800 RAM - GSKILL
EVGA GeForce 8600GT 256MB PCIx
I Tried several burns and now am installing from a USB Stick.
I was having the same BSOD with uncorrectable hardware error after loading installation files, it would show the starting windows screen....then BSOD 15 seconds later. I noticed it would restart right after my optical mouse would flash I figured it was loading device drivers.
I pulled the PCIx video card and installed using integrated graphics and IT WORKED! Installed fine booted right up. So I shut it down and reinstalled the graphics card and it immediatly blue screened again in the same spot. I started in Safe Mode and it would blue screen right after trying to load a driver file, I can't remember the name of it because I had to reinstall an operating system that would work....it started with pnp*** and it had a .sys extension IIRC.
I've tried disabling C1E Enhanced Halt State, and I've spent the last 6 hours messing around in the BIOS seeing if any other options would allow me to install or run it with the video card.
I'm curious if anybody else who has had this problem has an NVIDIA card or even what type their using....AGP, PCIx, PCI....if this is just in my case or maybe it's the problem that's causing the BSOD for everyone??
I've googled myself to death with this problem, I used the first beta release no problem, this has only come up since trying to install RC1...
