Can't Install Windows: Error 0xc0000225 Tags: Windows 7 Last response: February 14, 2013 10:28 PM in Windows 7 Share vinny1729 February 14, 2013 10:20:24 PM Hello. This is my first time building a computer myself, and I am pretty psyched. Well, not really. I just can't get the OS installed. I can install 32 bit, but I can't even load a 64 bit DVD. I get the error 0xc0000225, and it says it may be a hardware issue. Then it just keeps bootlooping. Also, I can only install 32 bit windows with IOAPIC off, if that is any help. Here are the parts for my system: MSI 760GM-P34(FX) AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R GIGABYTE GV-R667D3-1GI Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive I have been Googling this issue for the past three days with no luck. I only have one stick of RAM inserted. I have taken out the graphics card. So I only have the essential parts installed. Thanks everyone for reading this. I hope someone will be able to help me.
