Windows 7: Bsod

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Another interesting note: The computer only crashes during start up after a shut down. Resetting doesn't seem to affect it all that much.
I think that means it's an error in the BIOS isn't it? 'cause When you turn off the power it re-reads the BIOS, not when you reset.

Actually, that was one of the things that confused me too. In safe mode, wether with Networking, Commandprompt or with neither, It has a tendency to crash too.
My hard drives are actually from my old computer, but they were still functional the day I placed them in my new rig.
I have two: that Maxtor is the one I've got Windows 7 installed on which is a IDE drive, and a Western Digital hard drive which is a SATA.
I've discovered something else, though I'm not sure it has anything to do with this.
In the BIOS, my WD drive is labeled as the Primary IDE Master drive, even though it's a SATA and the Maxtor is listed as the Tertiary IDE Master drive.
There doesn't seem to be a place for SATA drives either. But as I said, I don't know if that matters.
That does sound strange... If it's a new system, I'd go back to the shop and haven them confirm HW vs BIOS settings.

What still also bothers me is that you have logged errors with a readboot image, even though you don't use one... a good thing to check at the shop too.
