Help! Win 7 crashes on startup with sapphire 5850 X58 Extreme

I recently put together a new system (specs below). On startup (cold boot) it will get to the windows splash screen with the for dots forming the windows log, then blue screen. Onces it reboots from that, it is fine and I have no further problems. It never happens on a warm reboot.

I just reloaded the entire system again and made sure to use the latest 10.6 drivers.


I also flashed the MB bios to 2.4 (latest).


This is really annoying and the best I have gotten so far has been ASRock MB suck and I should RMA. Since I bought the board based on this site, I figured I will see if anyone can help. Any ideas?

  1. What kind of BSD?
    Try booting with only 1 stick of RAM, try each of them individually, see which one that gives you blue screen...
