    Install x64 problem

    What is the age/condition of the cd drive? Dust? Not the likely culprit but worth checking out.
    I installed x64 on an ASUS a8n-e, AMD 3800x2, with striped raid SATA 2 without a hitch. (thank you thank you thank you) The cd rom was new out of the box.
    I would look at the cd drive first. What is the condition/age of the hard drive?
    All new build?

    You may be on to something there, I've had the same problem when I had a bad RAM module. I suggest running a memtest on it.
