7100: fresh install = BSOD, Update = well. Why?!


ive got a Problem installing build 7100 on my pc. if i boot from dvd, iam going well until the wallpaper and the mouse appears. after 5mins of waiting here iam getting a BSOD with an 0x0000007F Error Code.
If i try to install b7100 into a VM (with the DVD) it works!
And if i try to install/update the pc via the booted windows 2008, it also works!
Only if i boot from the dvd and try to install, it failse.

Iam allready tryed various options (remove USB,remove NIC, burn again(slow), vertify md5/sha1,removed raid) but always the same story.

short spec of my sys:
Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev1 with latest Bios
Intel Core Duo Quad
4x2GB Corsair RAM
2x Seagate 500GB HDD
ATI Radeon 4850

thanks for your opinions.

Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7100 RC x86/Windows XP SP3 x86 (Dual Boot)

Sounds like a driver problem or Hardware failure.

Windows 7 RC 7100
Same Problem

I had the same problem with more than 4GB of RAM installed.
No I'm running 4 GB and I could install it.
But even with x64 installation i can only access 3.325 GB of RAM.
Would be interesting to know if you can reproduce the same behaviour.
