Do you have a Seven install DVD. Not one that came with the computer, but a DVD that you purchased.

Having built the computer I have my USB Installer produced with (the original MS version) Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool from the Retail DVD.

I have microsoft update with no advanced settings changed, just to let it download and allow me to choose when to install. I'll get all the remaining updates now. I signed into the download center where I got my original disc from and the Windows 7 Link now says SP1. I'll use Daemon Tools and 7-zip to get fastfat.sys.

I was able to copy fastfat.sys from the Install DVD to my system folder after changing permissions. I will reboot and await instructions. The two files have the same time stamp so I am unsure if they are identical. I created a backup of the original.

[Update]Windows is updated and the system has rebooted since copying the replacement fastfat.sys

Yes, the time stamps would be the same, they came from the same place. Possibly the first is corrupt.

If you think that all the suggestions were taken care of. Use the computer and give us the new bsod reports if you get any.
