Windows 7: BSOD when trying to install Win7 64 on a new mobo, error 0x0000000A

BSOD when trying to install Win7 64 on a new mobo, error 0x0000000A

Dear all,

I have the following BSOD issue:
I have installed a new motherboard into my system (an MSI P43 C51). Before that I had a Gigabyte G41MT-S2P. The rest of the configuration is: Q9650, Thermaltake truespirit 90 cooler, 2x4GB DDR3 1333, GTX 470, 750W PSU, No-name case, SATA HDD 500GB, Windows 7 64bit.

Well, the issue first began when I tried booting into windows with the new motherboard: I received BSOD 1 second after windows started loading. I thought to myself.. new motherboard, new windows install, so i tried installing windows 7 64bit from DVD and USB stick, I get the STOP: 0x0000000A error during the installation. I changed the HDD, thinking it could be a bad sector problem, but no, the other harddisk behaved exactly the same. I have received BSOD at 40% extraction, 90% extraction and at the "Completing installation..." moment. I have also tried installing with only one memory stick, switched between ports, everything. The hardware I have is working, as I have been playing on my PC every day in the last month and received NO BSOD, also a had a small overclock on the CPU and GPU (100MHz on the CPU, as the old motherboard didn't support more than 343 fsb, and about 100MHz on the GPU). It was stable, no errors, no nothing.

My only thoughts are, after asking some acquaintances that work in IT Hardware support, that it could be a BIOS version problem (the BIOS is from 2005..) and the fact that my Win 7 installation kit is without ServicePack 1 (one colleague told me he's had this issue for more than once PCs and after trying to install with SP1, it went smoothly and without any errors.)

I just received a new, "virgin" DVD of Win 7 64bit with SP1. What I will try today is to flash the bios with the latest version and install the OS on a new, sealed HDD. It couldn't be my system components as they are compatible and they worked 1 day before with no problems! I have literally NO IDEA of what else could be the problem. Today I will try the install from the new DVD and with the new BIOS version. If that doesn't work, I have no idea what I can do.. this is one sucky situation.

If you have any suggestions, please, don't keep them for yourselves :-D

Thank you!

Well, with bsod dump file it's easier to find the problem.

For sure Arc read your post but in this section you have to take a few steps when you post, one of them is the dump file upload.
