Win7 7100 Clean Install - BSOD BAD_POOL_HEADER

Hi guys,

I have installed all betas I could find, all were/are running fine. But the RC is a lot of pain. It fails into BSOD at the last step of the install "Completing installation". The error reads BAD_POOL_HEADER. I tried 64bit only.

I verified the ISO checksums, I have read the recommendations here, tried Safe mode, disabled display, installed from disc or from inside Windows, from HDD, changed BIOS settings to safe defaults... No luck. I even tried to integrate newest video drivers from nvidia.com using vLite.

My PC is Q6600, Gigabyte P35ds3l, 6Gb ram, evga Nvidia 8800gts, old WD Raptor 74Gb, USB mouse and kbd, Dell lcd.

Please help.

Alex.

Same happened to me with build 7048. Pull out everything connected to your computer other than mouse and keyboard and try it again. it worked for me when I done it. The strange thing was it installed fine next time round and was ok once I plugged everything back in. Try that mate because like I say exactly the same thing happened to me.

Good luck!

No success... I disconnected everything possible, updated BIOS, even used my old ps/2 keyboard instead of the usb one. Now the BSOD has so much text - it scrolled down a page! I saw STOP 0x0..000C5. Where to go now? How to decrypt core dumps (and where to find them)? Jeez, it looks like much work for free to test some beta soft...

Leave 2gb of ram in and try again, add back the ram if successful.

Good Luck

It did the trick! Installed with 2Gb (oddly TaskManager reported 4Gb physical memory), after that put back all memory and it still works! Wonders!
