Windows 7: Windows 7 Install BSOD, CPU Config not supported?

Windows 7 Install BSOD, CPU Config not supported?

Now I am puzzled, I have tried 2x Windows 7 X64 builds and both turn out the same.
While the installer loads after pressing a key to boot from the CD the whole thing spits out a nice BSOD before I can do anything at all, and that BSOD says one thing:


Looking up that error it says it could show up if I combined a 486 CPU with a Pentium for an example... Fair enough... UNTIL you see what I got under the hood.
Only multi CPU setup I got is a SINGLE E8600 CPU which is dual core and those 2 cores are 100% identical architecture and speed wise.
So any solutions or any word from MS on this show stopper bug?

I would suggest to enter your BIOS (press DEL key at computer first screen)
and at the exit menu should be an option to "Load defaults".

Select that, SAVE and exit your BIOS and see if it works after that.

Hope it helps.
