So i built a new Haswell Build:

CPU:4670k
Motherboard: Asus z87 Deluxe
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
SSD: Samsung Evo 128GB

I've been trying to install windows on my ssd but every time i get the same error message: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. IT installs and restarts, but when it boots up on the ssd it never gets to the personalization screen. It just gets to the getting your devices ready screen, but never passed that. It just goes then to the error message and makes me install all over again. I've tried everything i could think of but nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated.

Carefully re-seat your RAM and GPU, and if that doesn't improve matters, try running on just one stick at a time and in different slots. Also ensure you install to Unallocated Space, never to a partition.

Thank you for your help, after re-seating the RAM and GPU, I also removed my wireless networking card and then it worked.
