Okay, so I just put together the new rig today

asus crosshair 5 formula
amd 1100t
gskill 1600mhz cl6 ram (defaulting to cl9 for now)
139g samsung 10k rpm hard drive (cleaned off with kill disk from past build)
1t storage drive

I started the bootup, all seemed to go well, so I go out to get some brews during the install.

I come back, and its sitting on a windows screen saying "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. windows install cannot proceed. to install windows, click ok to restart computer, then restart the install"

Yes or as much as I could tell on the surface. No issues at all. its just stuck in this loop.

I also just got a bsod of 0x0000001A ***?

Okay so it seems every time I get a bsod its a new error. I have seen "bad pool header" and something about "memory management". I have ran several hours of memtest on my old 1333 sticks, which I am now using in place of the new 1600mhz gskill sticks for the time being just to rule that out. any thoughts? is it a f-ed up hard drive? Also something wierd- I have a usb keyboard but a wireless usb mouse. To complete the windows install I absolutely had to have a wired mouse, or else it would continue to restart mid-windows install. could this be driver-related? What are the stock voltages I should put the 1100t and nb, ram, etc on, just to be sure?

Hey, man I had the same issue more of less with my board. I get a random BSOD and read write issues to the HDD and from DVDs.
I narrowed it down to an issue with the SATA controller. so I RMAed it.
if your having these kind of issues, I would say call ASUS, they have a program going on for this board, as it's seems to be having a lot of issues.
they just seems to be in short stock of the board tho.

on thing I would try is to update the BIOS, it might fix your issues. I've read other places it works for some people. I know after the update though there were a few issues with it. my system would restart if I tried to get into the voltage monitor area of the bios. and everything else on my board worked great except for the sata controller. I think I got about 10-15 differnt BSODs in windows 7 down to XP in all diffent versions of the OS. and it also failed in an install of Arch.

I know you posted this a while ago, but I thought it might help if you havn't found a fix for it yet.

Sounds like a RAM issues-I would set timings manually and increase the voltage(especially if you are using Gskill ECO's or low-voltage kits).A small bump on the CPU/NB might help as well.
