Hi All,
I have a gigabyte ga-ma78gm-s2h rev 1.0 motherboard with an AMD Athlon 5000x2 BE, XFX 8800GT and 2 sticks of OCZ pc6400 dual channel ram. I've tried to install both 32 & 64 bit versions of Windows 7 onto my Seagate Barracuda SATA II harddrive but i get a BSOD. I've used XP 32 bit before on the same hardware without any trouble. I have flashed the latest BIOS F11 to no luck. Any help would much be appreciated.

Next time it happens, scribble down the hex code that appears in the message; could be a bad driver (commonly) or seven is using memory more extensively and finding a 'flaw' in your memory setup (less likely, as you didn't have troubles w/Xp, & 7x86 [32-bit] is showing problem, too...) The code'll give us a clue!
