Windows 7: BSOD when booting up my new motherboard & CPU

BSOD when booting up my new motherboard & CPU

I just bought a new motherboard and CPU. They are an ASUS P8Z68-V LX with an i5-2500k processor. It goes through the boot cycle all the way up until it says "Starting Windows", then it pauses and flashes BSOD for a split second.

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I am unable to get Windows 7 to load fully, so I cannot get into anything. I am not overclocking at all.

If you cant boot normally or in safe mode, you can boot from the win 7 dvd if you have it.

If you are not under warranty and you have a desktop you can try pulling all the ram if you are comfortable doing so.
