Error installing any OS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just built a new computer and I can't install any OS on it. I've tried a burned Windows 7 disc on it and I get a "Code: 5" error. I've also tried an old XP disc that I always use to reformat and I get the blue screen of death (0x0000007B) and the last thing I've tried is using my old hard drive on it with the OS already installed but still BSODs. It says it's shut down to prevent damage to the computer. Can someone please help? I've spent so much time and money on this computer that I need to get it to work (it's my first build). Thanks!

Could be a few things.
First - if no OS works on 2 different HDDs, that points out to mobo/cpu/ram/psu issue.
Second - an OS from another computer very rarely boots and functions correctly if just moved to a new computer. Maybe your DVD is damaged (that's why you can't install the 7 and XP) and the OS from the old HDD doesn't feel comfortable being moved so suddenly (most of them do break when moved to a new set of hardware, and need reinstalling).

If you get the same issue with another DVD drive and another set of OS disks, then it is deffinitely a hardware issue. Checks go in this order - RAM/PSU/CPU/Mobo
