I'm trying to install Windows 7 64-bit on my machine:
- Intel Core 2 Duo E4500
- 3GB RAM (although only 2884608K reported in BIOS)
- GeForce 210 1GB
- Abit IB9 motherboard
memtest86+ reports no errors in memory.
It results in BSOD with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error.
I find it strange, because Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit works fine here.
I suspect this is graphics drivers' fault, because I had previously Windows XP (or Vista) installed and it stopped working showing BSOD with an error in nVidia driver, just as I updated to GeForce 210.
Because Ubuntu works (games, flash, movies included), I suspect the hardware is fine and I just need to get the correct drivers to load before installation.
Is my thinking correct? How can I install Windows 7 here?
