  2. Please provide some details about your system, and detail which drivers
    you're trying to load.

  4. OK, which drivers did you use for the 64bit install? You press F6 and it
    prompts you? Or you press F6 and it reboots before you get to the prompt for
    the drivers? (clarity is essential here, since timing is telling us where to
    look)

    Also, remove ANY USB devices except keyboard or mouse.

    I press F6, then I get the error and can not go any further. The system dosnt
    reboot it just says, press f3 then I'm out of set up. The only devices
    connected are, mouse, keyboard, hard drives, FDD . No USB ect. bare mim.

    I did'nt use any drivers as setup wont let me. I would have used the NVRAID
    64bit driver disk that shipped with the motherboard

    Since that error usually has an error message with it, why don't you give
    the rest of the information.

    "File /AMD64/ ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. The error code is 7. Setup
    cannot continue. press any key to exit."

  9. OK. So, what's the source of the CD you're using, and what controller is the
    drive attached to. I'm betting that it's a SATA CD/DVD drive, and I'm
    guessing you're going to have to plug in a pure IDE CD drive to get the
    install to run. Beyond that, if you burned the CD yourself, then it could be
    a bad burn. And even a manufactured CD can be bad.

  10. Mbarne:
    For x86, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318729/en-us indicates that a bios
    conflict or defective ram could cause this. X64 has been ram sensitive
    compared to x86. Another possibility is that if you’re installing x64 from a
    downloaded ISO image that the image is corrupt.

    I got the CD from my sister in law who is a microsoft certified gold partner.
    She had extra license so it is a legal copy. Drive is attached to IDE 1, I
    dont belive it's a SATA drive, but I'll check. Thanks

    You still don't say whether it is a burned copy or a manufactured CD. Very
    unlikely anyone would attach an IDE port, so you can forget that and
    concentrate on a bad burn/CD (as Charlie suggested) or bad memory (from
    x64's standpoint) as suggested by Dennis.
    Have you tried reading the file with a file integrity program.

    Issue resolved, it was a bad burn. Thank You all very much for your help.
