    Need help.

    I'm trying to install Windows 7 on this comp:

    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.8ghz
    MOBO: BIOSTAR A740G M2+
    2GB Mushkin DDR2 800( removed one stick, now 1gb)
    using Onboard Video
    using Onboard Sound

    Every time it starts installing after I select the Hard drive it BSOD's some time while in the expanding files process I think.

    I need some help trying to figure out what the problem is. I removed all hardware that I could out of the comp( sound card, video card, Ram).

    The Error message:

    Stop: 0x000000D1 (0xFFFFFA8801971FFC, 0x000000000000000B, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF88000F3865D )

    atapi.sys - Address FFFFF88000F3865D Base at FFFFF88000F36000, Date stamp 494318a5

    My old machine does the same thing with vista, it blue screens while expanding files or soon after. I'm fairly certain it's the hard drive on it's way out, I ran memtest for like 10 hours with no errors so I'm fairly certain it's not the memory. Do you have another hard drive to try?

    Its a brand new 80gb hard drive I got from newegg 3 days ago... I installed XP on it with no probs then formatted to put Win7 on it. I did a memtest on the system to see if its the memory and there were no errors.

    I have windows 7 installed on my current system with no problems.
