Getting a continuous reboot bad pool header bsod during windows startup on a brand new system. Has been running for one week or so.

I did two things before u got the errors. I ran a windows 7 service pack 1 update. I also plugged in a belkin wireless USB LAN card.
the bsod happens at the windows load screen everytime.
Regardless of what I do I cannot load windows to run a restore.

Things that I've tried
I have unplugged every USB device, bsod
Start up in safe mode, bsod
Safe mode with command prompt bsod
Windows startup repair, bsod
I put in the windows 7 disk for a restore, bsod
Reset bios to fail safes, bsod
I ran memcheck64 two nights ago with zero errors
System temp is 32 CPU temp is 34

I guess I will try to flash the bios as it is a brand new mono. I see bsod after windows updates are common.

Trying giving your memory an tiny bit extra voltage, sometimes running 4 sticks at the deafult voltage isn't enough.

Something went wrong during the bios flash using m-flash. Not getting a post now. Rma'ed through newegg today. Don't think I will trust MSI's M-flash tool in the future.

On a side note I've been using 3.65 volt memory even though my motherboard specs at 3.5
