Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

I have recently installed Windows 7 RC on my system. It's simply great and it works absolutely fine.

Initially I installed it on my laptop, so I wanted to test it on my desktop computer. But I can't. It shows me blue screen along with fatal error? What is that? Why can't I install it?

I tried installing with the bootable dvd, but I have a black screen after the Windows logo. I then tired to install Vista in dual boot on a second hard drive, but after reboot it also gave me a blue screen with a message saying Microsoft crash appears, it could be a problem with hardware?

My config:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13 GHz
2 GB of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7650 GS 246 MB
HDD 1: Seagate 360 GB
HDD 2: Maxtor 250 GB
Motherboard: MSI MS-7318 bios phoenix

Probably a problem of hardware compatibility. I don't which but I need some more information like what does it show in the blue screen? Is there any error code in that message, can you provide us that error code?

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

Yes the error code that appears when I have a blue screen during dual boot is as follows:

Stop: 0x00000124 (0x00000004, 0x081348024, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Is there something serious?

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

This issue occurs because resource rebalancing is triggered after you hot plug a PCI device. During the rebalancing process, the system does not configure the Max Payload Size value correctly on the root port of the PCI Express bus. The incorrect value causes a mismatch between the root port of the PCI Express bus and the device on the PCI Express bus. Therefore, the operating system triggers a Machine Check Architecture (MCA) exception, and the operating system returns a ?0x00000124? exception.

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft.

It could be your graphics card, it is PCI or PCI-E. please up-do-date your driver here. If you got a ATI card, you can find Windows 7 drivers here and NVidia here

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

Most of the time the error 0x124 is related to hardware .The errors are reported to Windows by the processor by using the Windows Hardware Error Architecture. As such, the information is a bit limited.

In this case the first parameter of the error is 4 and this means "An uncorrectable PCI Express error occurred."

I think the motherboard is bad or Windows hasn't picked the proper drivers for the motherboard

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

The OP's system spec is almost identical to that of my Medion MD8818, which is displaying identical symptoms and the same error on the BSOD. I'm half tempted to get a different PCI-E graphics card, as it does look as if the NVIDIA GeForce 7650 GS just isn't going to work with W7 - in its present state anyway.

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

Was getting blue screen of death during installation about 66% through finalising at first restart. In the end removed my graphics card and plugged monitor into motherboard. Ran installation again and it completed fine.
Seems that windows upgrade advisor doesn`t advise you to download all the new drivers before you start your windows 7 install.
Was in a whole world of hurt until I removed the graphics card. Now got to load a bloomin lan driver too.
Installation of windows 7 is not too clever.

If you have blue screen fatal error then main problem in that your hardware. first of all you will check hard disk data cable and power cable and clean the RAM both slot and change the RAM slot.

Re: Windows 7 RC crashes with blue screen of death

If you are facing such issues with the operating system then according to me the only option left for you is to install the operating system again. Some of the files from it may be corrupted. Take another copy of the operating system and install from it. I am quite sure that the issue will be solved.

From next time onwards, do not use the abusing languages otherwise you will be banned from this forum. please take this seriously.
