Hey guys! I have a Windows 7 Installation Problem.

Firstly my specs:
i7 3820
Rampage IV Formula
GTX 680 EVGA
16 GB Corsair Veangence RAM (purchased today because i thought the old ram could have been the issue)

I have a 120GB Intel SSD which i want to install windows 7 on, the installation is succsessful, but when it restarts automatically, Windows Boot Manager appears with this messege:

WINDOWS FAILED TO START. A RECENT SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE CHANGE MAY BE THE CAUSE.
TO FIX THE PROBLEM:
(Just says steps to get into windows repair)
Than says:
FILE: \Windoes\system32\config\system
STATUS: 0xc0000017
INFO: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.

I have tried:
Changing the SATA port for my ssd
Windows Repair
Copying the Windows 7 disc at 1x speed.
Trying to install it again and again...
all with no luck!

Thanks!

I installed Windows 8 and it worked perfectly.... So i coud draw out that any of my hardware was the issue.

I tried to install Win7 one more time and IT WORKED!


The mystery though is still unsolved and very cryptic....

What RAM did you have before?
- I'll avoid it in future builds.

Just some generic Kingston ram. I'm getting another error now.

I managed to fix the problem. It turns out I had my SSD connected to the wrong SATA port on the motherboard. All is good now.

Ran Burnin stress test for about 10 hours too just incase, no problems!
