    I have 2 disks 32/64 bit 7 that i do all my installs from and then pop with "the Loader" never any issues.
    the seagate Hdd in my main rig died, so purchased a toshiba and attempted a new install, i can load on the 32 bit with absolutely no issues, however 64 bit allows me to load windows then when i attempt to install mobo drivers i get blue screened and dumped out. have diskpart clean drive, reset bios, optimised bios tried mbr/gpt etc all with the same results.
    mobo is - gigabyte GA-H61MA-D2V.
    as stated works fine in 32 bit if a little sluggish as not using my full 8gig, any pointers please

    what is the source of your 64bit drivers? cd or downloaded? same as 32bit driver source?

    well you have me stumped..the only addition to the equation is that harddrive..might need to give it a stress test to see if you received a bad one

    thats about the point am at - even not using manuafactures mobo install, just getting ethernet drivers then updating online crashes it.

    what video card is in it > try using onboard video first. then do updates then insert the pci-e video.

    i had a buddy for days couldnt figure it out.. was his videocard had issues with windows 7 x64 <no ServicePack disk driver.

    he did install win with onboard video, then did all updates then installed card after.

    also check your windows 7 x64 to be latest not the old no SP. check bios settings.. date/rev of bios because it might need update.

    only got onboard video, just done a bios update to F6, there is a 7a but its beta. it is the old no sp but as stated never had an issue it was also the one i used originally on my seagate.
    the bios update screwed my settings changed boot order and achi to ide - now first thing i always check on reboot

    can only really be either a 64 bit bios issue or it dont like toshiba drives LOL

    Check the state of your Random Access Memory or try other one meant for the mobo.

    stress tested HDD came back 100% - looking for my memtest disk --- will check second suggestion.
    gonna grab a new copy of U7 inc sp1 just to rule that out, gotta find one that will pop with D/loader as i prefer that.

    memtest run 100% clear
    no LBA/large option.

    gonna scout for an original bios for the board, pre updates

    just curious if you have tried using USB or a different dvd/cd drive. Could be corrupting the install from the drive itself. I've lost some hair to bad dvd drives before.

    having spoken to supplier i have until april on board guarantee, so gonna try a complete fresh install, with everything flattened - if no joy gonna RMA it, luckily its only a 10 mile drop off to Scan for me.

    windows seems to install fine it only BSOD's on trying to update or add drivers.

    You tried the program "whocrashed" ?
    Than you can see better what causses the BSOD's
    Maybe you come a little bit further with that?
