Say, what if, this is a new installation onto a new hdd and you're still getting this bsod stop fatal error. Say you don't have any backups to restore cause it started doing this right after rebooting from windows 7 installation setup. Mind you brand new hdd, brand new installation. First boot stop fatal bsod. No safe mode, sfc /scannow no workie either. Reinstallation not happening. RAM possibly???
