Windows 7: Windows 7 64 bit Install BSOD

Windows 7 64 bit Install BSOD

Windows 7 installation fails with bsod when it tries to load driver vsmraid.sys (and I assume mount the hard disk). The only Windows/minidump directory is from an existing xp build.

These two crashes were caused by hardware. It also doesnt help that you have drivers that go back to 2001. These need to be updated. If it were me I would do a clean install of win 7

Before we can even attempt to identify the hardware problem you are going to have to update the drivers

trying to install windows 7 x64
I suppose my previous TWO posts weren't clear.

I am not performing an upgrade. I am performing a clean installation of Windows Seven 64 bit from a new OEM CD purchased from NewEGG on a NEW 640 GB hard disk from New EGG. The only mini dumps were from an XP installation on a different DISK. There is no minidump for the windows seven installation because windows seven never gets to mount a disk system to write the MINIDUMP.


If anyone can offer some meaningful help it would be greatly appreciated...
