    Sorry, my crystal ball must be off
    As much detail as possible, including hardware specs

    I have found BSODs during install often come back to faulty RAM, but that is purely a guess in your case

      Problem With Re-Installation

      Hi Guys,

      We recently had to get rid of one of our servers as it had stopped functioning correctly, but when I've come to Re-Installing Server 2008, It keeps bringing back a BSOD.

      Some of the error messages are:

      "Page_Fault_In_Non_Paged_Area"
      "IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal"

      This seems very weird as the machine was working fine a couple of weeks ago.


      If you guys have any information on why it would be doing this, I would be very appreciative as this problem has been bugging me for ages


      Thanks,

        Physical or Virtual?
        What hardware specs?
        What installation media are you using?
        Where in the install process does this happen?

          If physical, is this a different server than the one that developed a fault, or the same one? In your original post you say you "got rid of" the old one, so can we assume this is a different box?

          Again assuming physical, run some hardware diagnostics, such as MemTest86+.

          Once you answer Ossian's questions then perhaps we can offer more specific advice.

            Normally those errors have to do with memory so as Gareth is saying perform some diagnostics using MemTest. When you boot from the DVD you can perform Windows Memory Diagnostic by selecting Repair Your Computer

              yyyeeaa, those errors are hardware errors.
              or drivers at the very least.

              If you can get a full memory dump, windbg will tell you which driver is causing the fault

                Magic, any possibility you could come back to us with some more information, particularly answers to Ossian's questions, so that we don't have to play guessing games?
