Windows 7: Windows 7 RC Install Blue Screen

12 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7000
Windows 7 RC Install Blue Screen

I have been using the Windows 7 beta (build 7000) since the day it came out publicly without any problems. I downloaded both the 32 and 64 bit versions of the RC. Whenever I try to install either version I get a BSOD during the install. The DVD boots, it goes through the first Grey Progress bar, shows the new windows boot splash animation, then goes tot he BSOD with both versions.

The message says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and the bottom displays
*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000008, 0

I have tried systematically disconnecting ever component I could one at a time. I have 3 SATA Hard Drives connected, which I disconnected one at a time, and tried only one plugged at a time.
1 SATA DVDROM disconnected and connected
1 PATA DVDROM Disconnected and connected
6 GB Memory DDR2 PC6400, 2x 1GB sticks 2x 2GB sticks Tried disconnecting each, reseating, and installing with only one inserted at a time
I took out my Belkin Wireless Card
I disabled the SATA, PATA, Network, and integrated sound one at a time in BIOS
Reset BIOS to "Fail Safe Options"

None of these things worked. I am really enjoying Windows 7, and I hope there is a solution to this. I would like to upgrade to the RC, and I hope it is definitely fixed before the beta times out.

The last thing I could think it would be related to is the Motherboard itself, which I dont know any way to get around. I am running a ABIT IB9 with the latest BIOS updates installed.

Video Card is ASUS, Model EN8400GS SILENT, I would remove that, except I obviously wont be able to SEE anything, and I don't have any other PCI-E cards laying around.

Oh, and I also tried re-downloading and burning the images at the slowest speed possible.

A driver is causing the problem. I would suspect your video card. Many many problems with win 7 and video.

Do you have an onboard video card you can try?
