Yesterday I received new hardware and tried to assemble all of it. But when I was installing Windows 7 x64 I got a BSOD twice, and the following error message:
Your PC has rebooted unexpectly, installation will continue after reboot.
I have checked everything and tried to install one more time. It was almost successful, Windows had installed, but I cannot format my disk, open
cmd or Control Panel, boot from DVD etc.
It's the first time I have assembled a PC, and I don't know where the problem is, in my hardware or in Windows.
- MSI z77a-g43
- Intel Core i5-3570K
- Seagate Barracuda (plugged into SATA 6 Gb/s slot, I also have a SATA 3 Gb/s slot)
- Corsair XMS3 (4x 4 GB)
- HIS IceQ
Also in the BIOS, I have changed RAM frequency to DDR3 1600 and voltage to 1.65 V.
UPDATE: I have removed the video card, sound card, and left only 4 GB of RAM, and restored BIOS defaults. I can now install Windows. However, my memory is specced at 1600 MHz and 1.65 V, but if I set these values in BIOS I have BSODs very often. AUTO setings show 1.5 V and 1333 MHz. Is this memory compatible with my MSI z77a-g43 or the Intel Core i5-3570K?
