    If you are using the GSATA you can disable the SATA3 alltogether.
    But why would you want to use the GSATA at all?

    If you have a functioning ethernet card and internet connection, the installation DVD will connect to the internet.

    See General causes of "STOP 0x0000007F" errors

    You have an unstable system, and that could be for a lot of reasons. You could have a bad DVD drive. You could have a bad HDD. You could have a bad connection. If memtest86+ passes, you are less likely to have a memory error, but even that is still possible. I would load BIOS with failsafe defaults, not optimized. If that fails, then I'd try a different DVD. If that fails, then honestly I'd try a Linux install to ensure hardware integrity. In any case, you'll feel so good when you get it going.

    Please connect the OS hard drive to the first SATA Ports on the board, not the GSATA ports those are really slow and should only be used when you run out of space on the other ports.

    First of all, there's no OS yet. Second, I'm using GSATA because both HD and optical drives are only SATA2 capable, so using SATA3 ports are pointless.

    GSATA is terrible really, and shouldn't be used for a OS disk, only backup or storage, something like that when needed.

    All 6GB/s ports are backwards compatible with 3Gb/s drives, and those ports are what you should use for your main drives

    Gonna do no harm either. Problems if you look for them you'll find them.
    As for memory, there's is no guarantee it is error free even at defaults, testing it is essential, running it at lower frequency might help.
    We are just trying to help, eliminate the possible cause for an error and find the reason to it. The question do you too?

    Just as an example, recently there has been a user with problems installing AMD machine with RAID configuration which finally was solved by using a different installetion CD.

    Run a pass or two some memtest86+ first.
    In BIOS it says 1.50 volts, so I guess it's running at default stock settings.

    Is there a big difference between memtest86 and memtest86+?

    Is it even possible for Windows 7 to do a clean install and at the same time while still connected to the internet?

    I am under the belief that unless a drive is specified as SATA3 always use SATA2 or GSATA. If this is not true, then I am a fool or an ignoramus.
