have you tried letting it sit for a while on that screen. i put win7 on Pentium4 comp, not really able to handle win7, and it hung up on that screen for almost 15 min-20min. you have new stuff so i wouldn't think that that would be the problem. mabey your bios didnt set the right default ram voltage and its opperation is unstable but not to crashing points. the last one accualy happend on my Phenome II x4 build on a MSI board last year.
