Win 8 RP, Win 7, XP

easybcd is just a bcd menu editor
I think you are right, with the word menu underlined.

I will post the above mentioned logs. I didn't intend to be so vague. I use Easy BCD in order to dual boot with Ubuntu.

Windows 7 Pro x64
Update; Possible motherboard failure

Hello again;
Well, it looks like I have some major hardware issues. I removed all my ram and started testing it by trying to boot into Win 7 with different combinations of ram (one gig at a time). I had 3 gigs installed when the problems first started (2 @ 1GB chips and 2 @ 512MB). It turns out that at least one of the 1GB chips was bad, because after installing just 2 of the 512MB chips, the system booted. Now I have 2GB installed (4 @ 512MB in dual channel mode). The problem now is that despite the system booting, it is so slow and unresponsive it's virtually unusable. There must have been some collateral damage somewhere.
Did anyone look at the logs I posted in my last response, and if so, does it give any clue as to what may be going on? Thanks, in advance for any help provided.

And what happens if running in single channel mode?
Did you run a memory check with memtest86 to checks memory bank and sticks?

Double check that the RAM exactly meets the specifications of the mobo. If not replace it with the correct RAM.

If so test each stick and slot to narrow down to the problem one. Then run with the others.

Type Resource Monitor in Start Search box. On Memory tab how is RAM apportioned? How does RAM utilization look in Resource Monitor while using the PC.

Look over the Clean Reinstall steps I posted earlier to see how close you've come to getting a perfect baseline install. If not then I'd strongly consider it because getting a perfect install is in most cases better than getting a new PC.

I have only ran Memtest 86 for about an hour. I will start it again tonight and let it run overnight. I haven't tried to do a clean reinstall until I get this issue nailed with the memory, I'm afraid it would never finish installing.

Windows 7 Pro x64

Here's another update. I removed 2(1gb) chips from system and it booted into Windows. I now have 2 matched pairs of Corsair xms ddr (512 gb ea) installed and running in dual-channel mode. I ran Memtest 86 for about 12 hours and had no errors. I tried to boot into Linux and noticed some strange artifacts on the login screen and was unable to login. I again tried to boot into Windows 7 and was met wit some random color patterns on the login screen. I replaced my graphics card with the only one I had on hand which was a very old Riva TNT card (no Windows 7 drivers). I had to run it with basic vga drivers supplied in Win7.
It now boots into Windows but it is running so slow it is virtually unusable. Is this an expected behavior for a failed graphics card, or could the be more problems afoot? It would be good to know before I pick a new graphics card, even though I would move it forward into what ever I built for a new machine (when and if I can afford it). Thanks again

Why can you only do a Repair Install from a booted Win 7 system?
I never realized you could only do a Repair Install from a booted Windows 7 system. This is so dumb it leaves me almost (note I say almost :D ) speechless. It would seem obvious that a Repair Install should also be supported from booted media to fix problems that prevent a system from booting. ...
