BSOD During Windows Setup

Hey all ,Need assistance!

Sorry for the long post,But i really really appreciate your time and help.

Basicly ive just replaced the mobo in my system from a Asus P5Q SE to an Asus p5n32-Sli Premium,Reason been i want to use my GTX 460 and have a 8800GT as dedicated Physx,and my old board only had one Pci-e slot.

So i swapped them over,Switched on the system,went into the BIOS and selected CD Rom as first bootable device and my SSD as second,So i can install windows 7 x64 fresh.

All seems to be going well in windows setup until i get to the part where it says...Expanding System Files and around 60% into doing that i get a BSOD.


So i tried again re-installing...but this time its not even getting to the windows setup,all it does is get to the screen in the install before you choose your language/location and sits there.

So what i done to narrow down to whats causing the problem,Put in my old E6300 Core 2 Duo,and instead of Sata DVD-RW + SSD drive ive used an old IDE DVD-RW + Hard Drive.

Windows 7 X64 installed perfect,No problems...No using it right now.

So now i know that there cant be anything wrong with the board,But why is it when i put in my Quad and use Sata based drives it wont install right and i get BSOD?

The Sata drives work fine in my setup in sig...what ya reckon guys?

You know my motherboard is a Asus P5Q SE Plus and I'm experiencing BSOD too. Before I was using E4600 Core2Duo 6gb ram everything was doing great until last week I change my processor to Q8400 Quadcore and new PSU Silverstone Strider 600W and what do you know BSOD. I came across this Memtest software Made ram check and found out I had a 2 dimm slot B1 and B2 defective. So now I'm running at 4gb on A1 A2 dimm slot and no more BSOD. Anyways I'll visit the store were I purchased the board to ask for replacement.
