Windows 7: BSOD in Win 7 Prof 64-bit

Win 7 Professional 64bit
 
 

MadTown:

Later today I will install Vista and see how that goes.
After that I will create a USB FDD with Win 7 64-bit on it.

Now please correct me if I am wrong:
1. I'll follow the steps in the "Create a usb fdd key guide" you posted in the other thread.
2. When that is done, I'll Extract the drivers I want to pre-install and add them in a folder called "Device Drivers" on the usb fdd.

The Drivers I think I will be adding into that folder are:
Motherboard drivers for:
CPU
USB
LAN
Audio

Drivers for Graphics.

Any other drivers I should add?

3. Boot the computer to the FDD and run the Windows installer.

-- If I recall, when the installer launches yo uget 2 options, Upgrade or "Fresh install"

What choice should I use if I want to manually install drivers later? And when do I do the manual isntallation of them? After that first section of the install is done and the computer boots onto the HDD windows?


Spyknee:
The computer wasn't per-packaged per say. I selected all the parts and the retailer put it all together. Was not deliverd with Windows either.

So today I'll talk to them and see what they recon I should do, before I try the above.

you don't have to reinstall vista to use the upgrade disk.
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version
use the custom install instead, and at the very least, format both HDD partitions before continuing with the install.. otherwise you have a good plan. I prefer the grub4dos method, but either will work, just make sure to format the FDD first.

Ah, you misunderstood me.

I was talking about installing vista just to see if the graphics works there out of the box so to speak.

Then clean installing Win 7 if Vista shows the same errors.


Edit:
Was reading this thread: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=586183

Recon that my issue could be caused by a conflict between Nvidia HD Sound and RealTek onboard sound drivers?

not a bad idea. you could try disabling the onboard sound in bios if you have that option

At the moment I have no more freezes or crashes.

What I did:
1. Clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

After install finished (In this order!):
2. Installed the Intel INF driver for my motherboard: GA-P55-USB3 -- Did not reboot.
3. Installed the 260.89 WHQL version of the 64 bit drivers. Chose Custom install and selected nothing but the Graphics Drivers and Clean install. -- Rebooted.
4. Installed Onboard LAN. -- Did not reboot.

After this I've run SC2, WoW, Futuremark Venture Benchmarks. Everything at max settings just to stress the system as much as I could.
I.e. WoW everything set on Ultra with 1920x1080 and 8x/16x, avraged 180 FPS (with vsynch off) and 48C on the GPU.

What I did not do:
Install Onboard Audio drivers. I let windows use its own drivers.
Install Nvidia HD Audio drivers. Dont need them.
Run Windows Update. -- Might do this later, but I want to see if the system is stable for a few days without doing this.
