Numerous BSOD while trying to install Windows 7 via USB

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
New build. ***. W7 Ultimate, same disk was used to install this version of W7 that I am using. I copied all of the data from the disk and put it on a USB stick.

I created a RAID 0 array and I have tried to install W7 on that. First, I was able to load all the files, windows would open and then tell me to locate the RAID driver. Once that was done, windows install would hang at 0% on expanding installation.

Now setup will copy the files then the windows logo will show but before the animation is done, BSOD. I have take pics of 4 different BSOD so far. I upgraded my BIOS to the latest build.

Specs:
A10-6800K (not OCd)
Asus F2A85-M Pro
Gskill DDR3 1866 16GB (one 8GB stick in the comp)
2, Samsung 840 Pro SSD in RAID 0
Seasonic Platinum 860w PSU

What could the issue be? No crash dumps.
Stop: 0x0000004E
Stop: c000021A (Fatal System Error)
Stop: 0x0000007E
Stop: 0x000000F4

likely it's a bad stick of ram, or it's undervolted or something.

additionally (something to think about going forward) AMD cpus tend to react poorly to single sticks of ram... they're less stable with them at least. You might want to memtest the stick you're using, try a few passes at it, then test the other stick solo like as well. put them both in, and try again with both sticks in, instead of solo.

Looks to me like either you don't have the right RAID drivers for the windows install, or your ram is bad/incorrectly set up.

try bumping the voltage on the ram from it's base 1.5V to 1.6V. I have gskill ram that's "reported" by gskill to be 1.5V ram, which is completely unstable at 1.5V... i need to run it at 1.6V, give that a try and see if it fixes your problem. Also try to downclock the ram to 1600 or 1333 for the windows install. Unless your NB is operating at 3600 you won't get 1866 performance anyway.

Sorry I didn't update this sooner.

It was bad ram. One 8GB stick had all kinds of errors. I am sending off the RAM for an RMA tomorrow.
