In trying to install windows 7 onto a machine that has Windows XP, ran into problem after problem, now running ubuntu 12.04 until i can locate cause. Will tell in sequence of events, perhaps and earlier "fix" is leading to current problems.
I have used same disc to re-install windows 7 on numerous occasions, I can't for the life of me figure out the root cause of this, probably just not realizing my own stupid mistakes.
- AMD - Athlon X2 6400+ Black Edition (3.2ghz)
- ASUS - M2N-SLI Deluxe (Latest BIOS flashed, 1804)
- NVIDIA - 2x2gb DRR2 800Mhz [Memtest86 tested, both passed after ~3 hours of testing]
- HITACHI - 500Gb Sata HDD 16mb Cache [Tested using CHKDSK along with recommended seagate utility]
- XFX - Radeon 6870 1gb DDR5
PROBLEM: First couple times would BSOD during the opening sequence of windows 7 install ("logo"). Always with DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL 0x000000D1 or IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000A.
SOLUTION: Traced it back to Logitech Mouse, unplugged mouse. Could now enter Windows Setup Proper.
PROBLEM: Would get past Language screen, hit SETUP and would run into a "Windows is missing DVD Driver".
SOLUTION: Didn't realize IDE DVD-Rom was setup under slave, switched it to Master using physical DIM switch on drive, since it was setup for always being slave
PROBLEM: Would get to expanding files and stop and random intervals (Sometimes 1%, 3%, 32%, 68%, etc) Never in any desernable sequence. Would than say either [Windows copy install files: 0x80070570]. Or would simply say cannot install and boot me back 2 pages.
ACTION 1: Ripped and than reburned windows 7 .iso files using 2x burn speed on brand new DVD, as serch results and forums pointed to that as being a solution.
ACTION 2: Removed 1 stick of ram (now leaving 1x2gb stick in ram module 1A). Again, searches pointed to 1 stick being the solution
ACTION 3: Using previously ripped .iso, created a bootable USB stick (8gb kingston). Got to expanding Files and never makes it past 34% (stops everywhere between 0-33%)
ACTION 4: Reset CMOS by physically removing battery and putting back in after 60 sec wait.
ACTION 5: Swapped DVD drives & IDE cables. No change
ACTION 6: Changed many setting in BIOS [Raid:Disabled, SMART Drive: disabled, and few other such as case open warnings, etc], no-change
Would love to get my hand on a new .iso downloaded from Microsoft, but after hours of searching could not find a way to download. As this iso i have is ~18-24 months old, i have lost where and from whom i bought it from. Also tried mixing and matching these in case 1 was leading to other failing. Total attempts to install ~34
Since taking these drastic measures i can now no longer install Windows XP which was going to be my fallback, its BSODs with no stop error during setup (where you enter you CD-Key).
Installed Ubuntu 12.04 with no hassle whatsoever, formatted HDD and all. Tried to dual boot using unallocated space (400Gb). Caused Ubuntu to stop working. Had to re-install, now your caught up with me, any help would be appreciated. Will come back here if i do solve this or if community helps me. Will write how i did it.

I have had problem with installation W 7 on hdd that hosted Ubuntu. To remedy, I take hdd in another computer and made disk recovery with diskpart. (On the other hand Ubuntu has been able to install after W 7 had been installed, and more Ubuntu instaalation and cofiguration process could flawlessly configure Grub. I appreciated it.)
Here are drivers for your mb: Start with chipser driver installation, followed by audio, video and NIC.
