So I've finally got my new GPT/UEFI sytsem to run the windows install. However when it comes time to set up a desktop and computer name I get the Blue screen. Any input? Have tried and failed the same way 4 times.

-also before when I had it operational and running as an MBR it would blue screen randomly.
-I cant post logs because I haven't even set up my desktop yet

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode at all? Do you have a Windows 7 installation DVD or System Repair disc?

-update- I removed 2 dimms and was able to finally get my desktop created. However after the motherboard driver installation went through it's first system restart I got the BSOD as soon as the point where the windows loading screen would come up came along. I did a hard reboot and successfully logged in and installed the rest of the drivers for the mother board and haven't crashed yet. No I was not able to boot into safe mode while the instillation process is incomplete.

BSOD Analysis:

BugCheck 1A, {41790, fffffa8004dabb20, ffff, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+339d6 )
Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel
The bugcheck indicates that a serve memory management issue has occurred, more specifically from parameter one (in blue) we can see that the page table has become corrupt. The other parameters indicate that the reference count for the number of used PTE's has dropped below zero, leading to a fatal error. This is usually caused by drivers unlocking pages more times than it was locked.

When a page is locked, the reference count is incremented, and then decremented when the device driver unlocks the page, unlocking a page more often than locking the page, will cause the reference count to drop below zero.


Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

Your Gigabyte On/Off Charge driver is causing problems, and is a well known cause for BSODs with Windows 7 and Windows 8, please remove the program or driver completely from your system.
