Can't install Vail RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, getting a bit frustrated now and can't figure this out.

    I've been trying to install Vail for a week now without success.

    New System:

    Core i3 on a Gigabyte H57M-USB3, 4GB of 1333 Ram

    1TB WD BLACK 7200rpm

    2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4 5400rpm

    My problem is seemingly 'random' BSOD during installation as Vail is 'expanding files'.  Can happen at any point during expansion.  I initially tried installation via USB stick.  Tried multiple downloads of the InstallDVD.iso (with and without FTM - all CRC check out).  Tried WD black as install drive, then went to Samsung.  Then I burned DVDs ( some at 4x, others at 16x) and still have same problem.  The BSOD is usually stop 0x24, but I've also seen 0x01 and I think 0x07.  I set the BIOS to run SATA in IDE mode.

    What else can I try?  What am I missing?

  • Since this is (as far as I'm aware) the first report of this kind of behavior, it might be a hardware problem on your target machine.  Can you swap out the RAM and try again?  Or barring that boot from a RAM test utility? 

    Good luck,

    John

    Have you tried re-burning your DVD? You could have a bad burn.

    From the original post:

    " Then I burned DVDs ( some at 4x, others at 16x) and still have same
    problem."

  • Since you’ve tried both USB and more than one DVD burn to install have you tried installing another OS on this new system like Windows 7? Could be a hardware problem.

  • Well that was what I was thinking I'd do next, 1st test the RAM (since it is a new build), then try installing Windows 7.  I was hoping there was something glaring I was missing.  I will update with results.

  • memtest checks out ok, going to buy more ram anyway.  I'm pretty sure it's a hardware issue of mine and not the fault of Vail so I'll check back when I get it figured out.
