Windows 7: BSOD Windows 7 RC 7100 x64 at Clean Install

BSOD Windows 7 RC 7100 x64 at Clean Install

hey guys!

i just downloaded windows 7 rc x64.
at first i wanted to upgrade from 7000, but after the first reboot i saw blue... (BSOD)

then i thought, it would be better to do a clean install, burned the ISO on DVD and again saw BSOD even before installation progress has started (after Windows had collected information and first boot)...

now to my question:

is the BSOD caused by a bad ISO, or is anything wrong with my system?
by the way: Beta 1 Build 7000 x64 works fine...

thanks for your answers!

Julson

EDIT: bluescreen-code was 0x00000124

If build 7000x64 works then its not your hardware, try burning again using imgburn

thanks for your answer, but the same problem also appeared with mounted iso (extracted and not yet burned...).
as i said at first i tried to upgrade, but interestingly it was exactly the same error... both after the first boot between bootscreen and logon (or better say continue of install).

bluescreen-code was:

0x00000124

thanks!

Are you installing the OS with AHCI mode & windows not able to find the driver. I remember this happening to me on Vista x64 I then had to integrate the AHCI drivers.

Check your BIOS settings or make the setting to default.

Hello Julson,
i am leaning towards bad ISO, where did obtain it? i had to redownload my RC, something about missing files .
I eventually found a working one, its great .

Same Problems

Hi,

I got the same problems.

On my notebook I could install Windows 7 RC x86, but a high cpu usage and imediate blue screen after installation.
I had installed windows 7 beta installed befor which were working perfectly the whole time.
By the way, same happen to windows server 2008 r2 beta and windows server 2008 r2 rc also on my notebook.

Another problem, but still refereing to remarkable difference between beta and rc I noted on my desktop.
I could install windows 7 beta and windows server 2008 r2 beta without any problems having installed 6GB of RAM.
As i tried to install windows 7 rc and windows server 2008 r2 rc it hung up during setup. I even could not select country settings, nothing.
As I donwgraded my system to 4GB of RAM I could install the OS. After putting the RAM into OS did not start up again.
I don't know what windows has done to RC, but it seems that they have made some things more instable than stable.

No way to change it except of the windows develpement team.

What do you guys think about?

thanks to all of you for the answers.

i'm now just downloading another iso.
if this one doesn't work, i will check my drivers and bios settings (AHCI...).

due to the fact that the install of the beta worked fine, i suppose that the bios doesn't cause the BSOD.
but - as RiderInTheSky said - maybe MS changed a lot between Beta and RC. anyway, i will also check the bios then...

@ Enzo: It was a split up *.rar-file (500 MB parts).
Now i'm trying torrent.

kind regards,

Julson

okay guys... bad news.

BSOD is not caused by bad iso or something because the new one also causes bluescreen (both upgrade and clean install).
i also checked BIOS and there is no option AHCI or IDE available. It's only IDE.

by the way: my pc is divided into 4 partitions (C:\ [Windows XP], D:\ [Recovery], E:\ [DATA], W:\ [Windows 7].

same error code: 0x00000124

System:
IntelCore 2 Dual 1,86 GHz
1024 MB RAM
nVidia Grafics 256 MB
320 GB Disc


what to do?


EDIT: tried x86: after booting from DVD: same BSOD!
seems like my PC wanna kid me!

Hmmm, ever thought there could be some sort of HDD protection software, maybe limits dual booting or something arather?
I had this happen with my hp once before, i couldnt install a second OS because software limited it to 1 OS.
Stupid if you ask me..
