    Default Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R and blue screen on Win XP Pro setup

    Hi all. I just rebuilt my comp with all new equipment. When I'm trying to install Windows XP Pro (SP1 I believe) it'll start to read the Windows disk after some initial setup work for BIOS, but when trying to "Windows Setup Initiating" it goes to a blue screen of death with error code e7. I cannot run anything since it's a brand new HD. I called the RAM manufacturer and they told me to run this as the BIOS settings:

    Performance Enhance: Standard
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P): Disabled
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch: 333
    System Memory Multiplier(SPD): 3.20B
    CAS Latency Time: 5
    tRCD: 5
    tRP: 5
    tRAS: 15

    >Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD: 4(3-5)
    tWTR: 5(2-5)
    tWR: 6(4-6)
    tRFC: 60(50-60)
    tRTP: 6(4-6)
    Command Rate(CMD): 2T
    >>>>>> Channel A
    Static tRead Value: 9(7-9)
    tRD Phase(0-3) Adjustment: Auto
    Trd2rd(Different Rank): Auto
    >>>>>> Channel A and B
    Static tRead Value: 9(7-9)
    tRD Phase(0-3) Adjustment: Auto
    Trd2rd(Different Rank): Auto

    DRAM Voltage: +0.2V to +0.3V (2.0V - 2.1V)


    Please help!!!!

    Load optimized defaults first, save reboot and make the following changes:
    Code:
    Performance Enhance...................: [STANDARD]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.).....: [profile1] << or profile2
    
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: << 1.2-1.24v or 1.05-0.95v try higher first
    Save and reboot, enter BIOS and check ram voltage in PC Health and see that it meets ram specs.
    If you can burn a CD/DVD with memtest86+ I reccomend you run a few passes before attempting to install windows.

    memtest86+ can be downloaded from http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...30/#post284762

    If any of the above do not work try with XMP disabled.

    I would defiantly do the load optimized defaults but use the manufactures suggested settings. Also With XP SP1 you will probably need to load the F6 drivers if you plan to use ACHI for your HD or raid. Whaih I suggest to set it to ACHI mode in bios befor installing your OS.

    You can save your current settings in a VIOS profile (press F11 in main BIOS screen) in case you want to return to them (F12 in main BIOS screen).
    No don't keep anything, loading optimized defaults will set everything to auto/default values, make nesessary changes, like hard disk boot order, you have made before.
    Only changes in MIT as I suggested.

    Sorry but I forgot to include the BIOS #.

    F11 in current BIOS, so how should I go to F6 if I cannot put in the mobo CD?

    NO no I mean when your installing the OS early on it will ask you if you want to install drivers you press the F6 key to do that.

    F6 is option in XP installation to load HD drivers when needed, not BIOS vers., if you are not using AHCI mode you don't need it.

    yeah, i'm not as tech-savvy as you all, so i have no idea what ACHI is, how to run it, or the benefits of it since i have only 1 new SATA HD, and tryin to use an older IDE HD which isn't connected at the moment due to all the problems I'm having.

    Or if you have access to another computer you could use nLite to slipstream SP3 into to XP SP1 disk and use that to install the OS. That way everthing will be on the disk.
