Error message on new install

Hello all,
I am installing Win 7 x64 on a new HDD.  about 5 minutes into the install I get Error 0x80070750 file or directory corrupted and unreadable.  It's a new Win 7 DVD, it's a new 1.5 TB HDD partitioned C=498GB, D=909GB.  I have tried a new HDD with the same config, and a second Win 7 DVD.  This keeps coming up, usually at or about the same time in.  All I've seen so far about this has to do with existing Win 7 installs, not a new one.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
jwhite

The drive is likely a SATA hard drive. Look in the BIOS for AHCI and try setting for Compatibility Mode for the installation. That works for some installs that stop like this.

Some data is getting corrupted. If previous poster's solution does help, try replacing the SATA cable.
Also if that doesn't work, try with other memory modules (or if you already have two installed try with one first, replace with the other if it didn't work)

Run a memtest86+ on the PC and if you get errors, replace the bad RAM. You'll find the tool on the UBCD:

Reset your BIOS to default as it could be BIOS settings.  Also check and see if there are Win7 drivers available for your disk controller.

It was the memory.  Both sticks had errors and caused them.  Thanks all.
