BSOD after clean install of windows Vista or 7 on a formatted HP

  1. Computer's been acting odd and it's never had a wipe so I decided to upgrade to a new OS and formatted the drive.
    7 installed fine but later on that day crashed and would not restart again with bsod.

    Tried to clean install Vista over that and it won't even finish the installation process.
    It does the initial restart and then while creating the first user profile and starting for the first time I got bsod with
    page fault in non paged area

    The errors are different every time and I'm not sure what to do since I don't have an OS to work with.

    Any help at all would be appreciated as I have another computer that was doing a similar thing when I tried to reformat it.


    I'm getting the OS off Technet and using imgburn to put the iso file to disk and I have tried multiple burns to see if that was the problem.
