first check the RAM, especially since the error is in non page area, second it could be the CD or HDD, third since it is happening during install, maybe a corrupt disk, if you are going to reinstall do not format the drive, use the Ultimate Boot CD and in the HDD tools use wipe to write zero's to the drive first
first check the RAM, especially since the error is in non page area,
hope it's not a bad stick, any particular program you recommend? Links?
second it could be the CD or HDD,
currently burning samsung's HDD diag tool from the HDD link I gave above, can you recommend some other diagnostic software?
third since it is happening during install, maybe a corrupt disk, if you are going to reinstall do not format the drive, use the Ultimate Boot CD and in the HDD tools use wipe to write zero's to the drive first
I used win7's commandline option in the install DVD's tools, then ran "format c: /p:30" which wipes each bit to 0 30 times, no errors found, ran chkdsk on the volume, no errors found. Any difference between this and UBCD's wipe/format?
If the disc is pirated, I'd start at a bad image!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go buy a retail disc.
this *IS* a retail disk, shiny windows holography all across one side, sticker with my CD KEY on the box ready to be ripped off and stuck on the PC's Case. Thank you for the obligatory "don't pirate" message, but it's unwarranted here.
Have you performed chkdsk to check your HDD? This does not require a bootable CD other than the Windows 7 DVD.

Yes I have, right after I moved into commandline and tried Format c: /p:30 I ran Chkdsk C:
I found it kind of odd chkdsk and format executed so quickly for a 2TB drive though, took less than a minute on each.
From what I know NTFS shouldn't have an issue with a ~2TB partition, but when I try loading the installer DVD in safemode via F8, it hangs loading \windows\sys32\drivers\disk.sys with a stop error EG 0x0000007e(0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff8000c080105,0xfffff880027b4788,0xfffff880027b3fe0) I was thinking since safemode hangs it could be an issue with default drivers and my SATA controller? However the GUI on "normal" boot sees the drive fine enough to format it, and my motherboard driver disk doesn't have any drivers the installer recognizes. Perhaps it's an x64 specific issue?
1. - Memory remap enabled, 2 x 2gig sticks, 2 x 3870x2's = freeze at startup/install language menu.
2. - Memory remap enabled, 1 x 2gig sticks, " " = Installs great
(after OS install if i put back the other ram stick, it loads/boots very slow, 2-3mins, normally 30sec)
3. - Memory Remap enabled, 2 x 2gig sticks & 2 x 1gig sticks, " " = Install starts up as it should.
4. - Memory Remap disabled = Any memory configuration works great
In test 2. the only way i can get 4gig's to work properly, is by entering MSconfig and ticking off Memory = 4096mb
After reboot Window7 states i only have 1663mb usable all though i have 4gigs. LCD smartie also states this.
as soon as i put in 2 more sticks Windows detects all of my memory just fine = 6000mb
msconfig tweak is not needed when 6gigs are installed (Normal Startup, selected within msconfig).
Ive been reading all over that this is the way "Windows Vista/7 allocates memory with video cards etc".
This is not true i had no issues of this nature in Vistax64,
If i remove the 2x 1gig sticks, Windows7 instantly goes into a 3min boot time and once booted it is only reporting 1663mb plus i need to do the MSconfig tweak.
