W7 is very sensitive on the RAM, is it OC'd?

When u start the PC, it shows the BIOS version too.

It will show this.

But, u probably have the older BIOS version, if u never did any updates.

Try to find it and possibly update.

before you go to all the trouble of replacing power supplies and swapping rams just do yourself a favor and borrow a cd rom from another computer and try to install it from a cd instead.

The PSU, if faulty can run, but it can spike the voltage and ruin the install,

happens all the time.

Run USB memtest to see if the RAM passes.

Good luck to you in your troubleshooting. I still advise trying a traditional installation from a cdrom. you could also try installing it from a different usb thumbdrive. or perhaps try installing a different OS like Ubuntu or Fedora to try to narrow down where the problem is.

I've seen Linux (I think it was some Ubuntu) installed

and than windows failed repeatedly : )

And the problem was the RAM.

even if there was no battery at all you could install the OS just fine and it would not cause the data or i/o issue the OP has.

You dont need to mess with bios settings. or change sticks of ram. all you need is a legitimate windows CD and product key and an optical drive and I'll bet it will install just fine.
