"...migrating from XP to Win7 using Windows Easy Transfer. The best in my view is a clean install, but not all want to go in that direction. Laplink to me is not the answer.

Windows 7 64 Professional Ram Problem - As Of 10-14-09 per Gill Boyd

  1. Remember Vista 64 Business not installing with 4 GBs or more of RAM until after SP1?
  2. Seen This Yet? windows 7 64 stop: c000021a - Google and see what you get!
  3. Install using 4 GBs of RAM or less or else get a corrupt Installation. Verify using chkdsk. From Windows Explorer, select C drive. Right click, select properties then Tools tab. Under Error Checking, select Check Now. Let 764 Pro Reboot and chkdsk will run from the command line. Watch and learn! Yes, takes a while to run. Takes even longer when the HD is corrupted! This is NOT the Solution just more evidence of a significant problem - A corrupted Installation!
  4. Upon successful installation & completion of 764 Pro, then install additional RAM! Voila!  Otherwise, BSOD Stop Errors. No need to increase RAM Voltage nor North Bridge Voltage either! Enjoy!
