I put in the CD (with an image file of Windows 7 burned at 4x speed), boot from disk, and am able to get through the installation including copying and then expanding files. After this the computer restarts, there's a screen that allows me to choose "An older version of windows, Windows 7, and Windows Vista". Selecting Windows 7, the load screen comes on, but then disappears, there's a black screen, then the BSOD comes on. The error is:
I tried googling this error but couldn't find any info. I tried installing both 64 and then 32 bit systems, but both BSOD at the same point in the loading phase. When I try to go into Windows 7 safe mode, it says that windows can't complete installation in safe mode and restarts, leading to the same problem.
I tried unplugging all but one optic drive (with the CD), and 2/3 of the hard drives, with no help. The specs for my computer are as follow:
CPU - Core 2 Duo E6420 - Overclocked @ 2.9Ghz Bus 415 Multiplier 7x
Cooler - Zalman Al/Cu Cooler on it
Motherboard - Gigabyte 965P-DS3
Graphics Card - BFG Tech 8800GTS 320MB
RAM - 2 x 1 gig Corsair PC2 - 6400 (400mhz)
Harddrive - 150 gb, 3 50gb partitions
I'm really at a loss of what to do here. Please let me know of any advice that you may have.
