    A. Your motherboard does not support the kind of memory you have in the motherboard
    B. You have your memory or an important system component overclocked
    C. Your motherboards chipset does not play nice with the kind of memory you have
    D. You do not have the recommended memory from the manufacter of your mobo


    Basically it is almost ALWAYS one of these things when it comes to the BSOD on an installation, it happened to me, and it was because of reason C. so then I traded my membory for money, and had my friend buy me some Samsung memory. Even after I called tech support at Asus the guy agreed with me, and said that BS are almost always because of faulty memory, or memory that the system does not like. Even though it will function fine when windows is installed when installing it's different. Anyway make sure there isn't a turbo option checked in your BIOS, andm switch around memory modules, and blast them with canned air. n I remember my mobo was detecting 512 stick of memory at one point. I found the other module has a **** load of dust in it b/c of my blowhole going in (I had a reason behind this, but not a very good one) So I cleaned it out, and hoped it would be fine. I turned on my box, and boom it then recognized both sticks of PC2100 at 1 gig :) Good luck bro!
    Box:
    [Mobo] Asus A7N8X w/ Modified 1003 Uber BIOS w/ Custom Boot logo
    [CPU] Athlon XP 2200+ Thoroughbred
    [Memory] 512 Samsung PC3200 DDR400 w/ Copper Heatsink(s)
    [Video Card] Geforce 3 ti200 128 DDR Special Gold Edition

    Cooling
    [Case] All aluminum Skyhawk case w/ custom cut blowhole
    [HSF] Volcano 11 Xaser Edition
    [Northbridge] ThermalTake Crystal Orb
    [Southbridge] Aluminum Northbridge heatsink attatched

    Operating System:
    [OS] Windows XP Pro w/ SP1

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Are you installing the correct SATA drivers at the very beginning of setup? If so, do to your hard drive manufacturers site, download some diagnostic utilities and test your drive. Also check your IDE connections

    The 7B error refers to Windows loosin' access to the boot partition/volume.

    ME AND 98 don't fall prey to memory errors like 2k and xp. They tend to just bluescreen randomly instead, whihch is hard to differentiate between normal activity and error in the case of 98.
