Installation fail :( blue screens

hi, i m on a amd dual core 5200, abit k9n with latest bios, ati 4830, 2gb ram 800mhz (2x1)

i have downloaded from my university win7 x64 version (the free copy for students build 7600) but i have also tryed 2 other versions (rc i think, both 64 and 32) with no success.

first of all, the starting installation page is very slow, after 4-5 minuts on "setup is starting" (advance mode, not upgrade), and at the second step (expanding windows files 0%) installation crashes with blue screen:

first time i get: bad pool header error

second time i m on another blue screen: "a device driver attemptingto corrupt the system has been caught. the faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced.."

now i will try the 3rd time to install in "safe mode" and i post new info here.
if u need something more to know for helping me ill provide them as fast as possible.

Hi and welcome to sevenforums.

Because you seem to be having problems with 3 different versions I think we ought to look at how you download the image, how you burn it, etc

So

you are downloading from your school. do you use a download manager? when its finished downloading do you check the hash values to make sure its identical to the original?
When you burn it to dvd (I assume you are burning it to dvd) what app do you use? At what speed do you burn it? do you burn the one ISO image, or do you extract the files and folders and burn that?

If you plan on staying at 2 gigs of ram you are better off with the 32bit version.

Waiting for info

i downloaded and burned all 3 from home. for the beta/rc i used the windows downloader (in java?) and checked m5sum manually and it was correct on both.
i burned using imgburn (i have burned other imges for others So with it), ofc i burned it as an image. and all of them boots ok on computer start.

for the "student" copy i used a win downloader with an integrated CRC check, and burned on verbatim at 16x (2 of them, the second one i tryed to burn slowly but nothing changed)

the dvd boots fast, doens hangs on reading the dvd.

ps: thx for the welcome )

ps: in safe mode now i m at "expanding windows files 10%".. lets see if and when crash this time. (i also plug off net cable)

When you say you are in safe mode, you are giving me some concern. First, put the DVD into the drive, and reboot the machine and let it boot from the DVD. Do the install from there. I'm thinking that you have your old OS (ubuntu, xp??) and trying to install from there. First, I never recommend installing the OS with the other OS running. Too many gremlins hiding out in strange places. Just install from boot.

Secondly, I hope you are doing a clean install and not an upgrade over XP, as I do not believe an upgrade will work from XP to W7.

Good luck and let me know if any of this helps.

i m not installing from my old so. i just boot from DVD and press F8 ( a menu pops up and i choose safe mode )

i checked my ram and its ok..

last 5 error are "uncorrectable error in data"

commands leading to the command that caused the error were:
READ DMA
READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS EXT
IDENTIFY DEVICE
SET FEATURES
READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS EXT

but all self test completed without error

Ok so first off, Welcome to SF!

Secondly, I suggest you go with 32bit, I see you have 2GB of RAM. IF you do not plan on upgrading to 4GB or more, stay with 32bit. Better software support, and its cheaper to buy.

Thirdly, Do not burn your images faster than 4x. Windows 7 is VERY picky.

Fourthly, Why in Gods name are you going into Safe Mode to install Windows 7? You shouldn't have to do this period.

Nice to have a first poster with active brain cells. sorry about dumbing down.

Good idea on the network, just cant update. If it still fails I have seen comps where some ram had to be pulled. (leave abt 2 gigs in)\

Let us know how it goes

i picked up 64bit because i have 1 copy free and i choosed that because i probably buy a new pc new year

about burning speed, i have read thousand of different opinions, on some cdburner forums they also say that low speed is not good on new burners/media.. anyway i tryed also 1 copy at low speed

fourtly, i just tryed safe mode because any other try fails... in safe mode .. it worked!!! the problem is when windows rebooted to complete the installations, (and reboot in normal mode) it hangs on "completing installation"

i think one of the point is "why in safe mode installation doesnt hang?"

ps: thx to all for ur time and help, i really need it now
dont want to reinstall xp at this point
