How to slove Hardware problems

Hi Experts,
I have a problem I coudn't slove on my own.

I want to create a test-pc with:

Mainboard:                       Asus P5KPL SE (Sound, G-LAN, SATAII)

HDD:                                 WD Caviar Blue 500GB HDD 7200rpm 3.0Gb/s SATA sATA 16MB cache

CPU:                                 INTEL Core2Duo E7400 2800MHz LGA775 FSB1066 3MB cache ATX Box CPU

RAM:                                2 x KINGSTON 2GB DDR2 PC2-6400 ECC 800MHz CL5

power supply unit:           be quiet! Straight Power E7 400W

Video Card:                      Asus EN8400GS SILENT/P

So now my problem is: I tryed to install Windows 7 x64 and had a bluescreen so the installation stopt and the system complains about missing iastor.sys or missing kernel driver. How could this be and what can I do now?

Thanks for every given answer!

Well, either garbage in or garbage out.   Try making a copy of the CD and see if you get any errors.  That eliminates garbage in.  Run hardware diagnostics on the disk drive to eliminate garbage out.

WD has diagnostics on the web site.  A full destructive read/write is way to go since this is a new installation anyway.

i would start with testing the basics : RAM and disk.
download and make the ubcd on a working pC, then boot from it and run memtest86+ for ram, and the disk diag you need.  http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/      

note that it may also be a failing dvd drive

check your BIOS on things like:
SATA Mode: IDE
On-chip Serial ATA: Auto

Try to change them into the right settings, if you use IDE then put them on IDE...

Hi Experts!

My Problem was a defect RAM card. I removed one RAM card and it works.

Thanks for all comments!
