    BSOD on fresh install when install updates, misc error codes


    My system info is in my profile, installing Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Retail. Attached is all of the report info.

    I have no idea what is going on. Whenever I try to install all of the Windows updates it blue screens. Then it will reboot, try to apply the updates, and blue screen again. I've run Linux Server 12.04 on this machine just fine, so I'm fairly certain it's not a hardware issue. Also, this build is brand new (built it a few weeks ago)

    Thanks for your time!

    Things I've Tried:
    - Reinstalling Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
    - GPU, CPU, and RAM stress tests (all showed no signs of error)
    - Unplugging extraneous HD's
    - sfc.exe /scannow (no errors)

    EDIT:
    The main error code seems to be 0x101
    Just got a new one that is 0xFC

    SOLUTION EDIT:

    I disabled core unlocking and everything is magically working. I suspect I had a faulty core unlocked. Still doesn't explain the stress tests passing, but whatever.

    I've been running stress tests and my CPU, RAM, and GPU are all functioning properly. I'll try checking out my BIOS version when I get home from work.

    0x101 was indeed an error code I got the last time I got a BSOD. However, as I mentioned originally, I have doubts that this is a hardware issue.

    Very rarely a 101 can be caused by software but 99 of 100 times it is hardware.
