i recently bought a new i3 processor and mobo, got them installed etc. the problem is that every time i try to boot windows, it greets me with a 0x0..07B bsod. i gets to when the 4 dots that form the windows sign just appear, then bsods . ive tried to repair windows to no avail, and it seems to work ok when booting from a disc. im trying a gentoo cd with no probs atm.
