I have just received my new desktop and I am trying to install win 7 x64 en ultimate
the configuration of the pc is:
AMD phenom II X4 955
asus M4A785TD-V EVO
4GB ocz ddr3-1600

when I boot from the dvd after the first message of loading files I can see the starting windows
and then a blue screen with the message
fatal system error stop:C000021a......

any ideas?

PS I boot my new pc with a live cd of ubuntu and it started fine
a b $ Windows 7

0x21a indicates an issue with the Bios (6th entry on the following table)

Please check to make sure your mobo's Bios is compatible, and flashed to the latest release.
