i built my friends computer for him, (not my first) and went to install win 7 ultimate 64bit. the system booted just fine started the "windows is loading files" screen, once all the files loaded it went to the "starting windows" screen where the orbs of light come together to form the windows emblem, but a couple seconds after it goes from loading files to starting it BSODs.
the system specs are:
-Windows 7 ultimate 64 Bit - purchased
-OEM caviar green WD 500GB HDD
-OEM Samsung Bluray drive
-AMD Phenon II x4 925 (processor)
-Asus M4A87TD EVO (motherboard)
-EVGA Nvidia 9600 GSO (video card)
-Rosewill 650 watt PSU
i have updated the bios to the most recent build, and the bsod changed what it was complaining about... from
1. netio.sys [DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL]
2. netio.sys [PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA]
this happens with win 7 64bit,
i tried to install 32bit vista ultimate and it bsoded again, same place, only the bsod pointed to something else...
*** STOP: 0x00000050 (oxffffff85, 0x00000001, 0x8071e3fc, 0x00000000)
*** pci.sys - address 8071e3fc base at 80715000, datestamp 4549adc1
after that i tried to install windows xp home ed. sp1, that actually worked, and i was able to run it, and got it updated to sp3 and ran the windows 7 update advisor (that file is attached, 64bit and 32bit said the same thing).
after it was fully updated, i put the vista 32bit disk back in to try the upgrade system option, it work just fine till it had to restart, at which point it would load a black screen and do nothing..
i thought that it might have been caused by the upgrading, maybe the MBR needed to be reset, so i put in my win 7 boot loader repair disk, but right after that loaded the files, it BSODed.
last ditch effort i tried a copy of windows 7 ultimate 32bit, once it finished loading files it froze in the "starting windows" screen. so i tried it again but told it to boot setup in safemode, that seemed to work, it started spewing all the drivers
that it was loading, then once it reached "disk.sys" it BSODed, pointing at "msrpc.sys" with a datestamp of "00000000"
right now the computer is running killdisk to reformat the HDD.. i am running out of ideas, please help me..
