    Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    Okay, so I thought I would check out windows 7, made a new primary partition on my HD (which means I have 3 primary partitions, one used by vista x64, one by xp, and one set aside for windows 7 - plus an extended partition for storage), and tried to install from the boot dvd.

    However, shortly after the 'Starting Windows' animation before installation starts i get a BSOD which reads:

    STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
    The initial session process, or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000221 x001003a8).
    The system has shut down.

    I have tried my default BIOS settings (which overclock the processor) and default BIOS settings, both lead to the same error.

    Pre-existing installations of Vista and XP both load fine, and I only re-installed Vista the other day with no problems.

    Any ideas anyone??

    Just to be clear, where does it fail? Is it during the install process or is it after you've finished installing 7?

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    It's during installation - right at the start before anything has been installed.
    It loads up the installation files from the DVD okay I think as the bar goes from grey to white along the bottom. Then aI get a 'Starting Windows' screen with a windows flag animation thing, then a BSOD with the error.

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    Not had the error myself and ive installed 3 different version of 7 including 7100. Try burning it again but at a slower(or slowest) speed.

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    Could be a dodgy burn, try doing it again at a lower speed

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    gonna suggest that, dodogy iso, or dodgy burn?

    redownload it and try again at a slower speed to cover all bases.

    Do you BSO much with vista64 or xp?

    my vista64 BSOD's weekly due to a bad install, but since ive been running the latest RC its been fine

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    Dodgy burn was what I was thinking.

    When I installed 7 on my second PC 'something' went wrong with the disk and I had to burn another copy onto different media before it would work.

    Re: Windows 7 RC Installation BSOD

    My Vista/7 RC only BSOD very rarely and usually due to a turd overclock. You could re-download the iso again however id still recommend burning it off at a slower speed, it only takes 10mins or so at x4 doesn't it ?
