"Setup is Starting Windows" then BSOD!!!

This is driving me crazy. I just built my new system and immediately upon trying to load windows xp pro x64 onto my brand new HD, I get a BSOD after it says "Setup is starting windows". Tried each stick individually and still got BSOD. I have even tried the "F5" trick to enable multi processors, still the same result.

My specs:

920 i7
gigabyte ud4p
OCZ Platinum 1600 PC 12800 3 x 2gb
Corsair 620W
evga gtx 275 ftw
caviar black 640gb

Does anyone know what is causing this? Please help!


I plugged in my old HDD that had windows on it and it booted up perfectly. Does that mean the new caviar black i bought is cooked?

  1. Did you enable AHCI or RAID on the SATA controller? If so, did you press F6 at installation time to load the AHCI or RAID drivers from a diskette or did you slipstream the drivers?
