    BSOD woes

    Im getting this error during installation, towards the end of the process
    IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
    0x00000007

    running:
    ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe, Nforce 570 chipset
    WD 500gig hard drive 16MB cache, single partition
    LiteON DVDRW
    Gforce 8800GT 512MB GDDR3
    Creative Audigy XFI extreme gamer (which ive uninstalled as a step to try to eliminate this error)
    AMD Athlon 64x2
    4gig DDR2

    The installation goes well until after it reboots and tries to complete. It will reboot and run for a few minutes before the BSOD. The only thing i have'nt tried is to use something like VLITE to inject the drivers from ASUS. I'm reluctant to do that since the chipset driver from ASUS for vista x64 is a beta. I have also tried to disable any unnecessary hardware in the BIOS to help to narrow the search down a bit.
    HELP!!!!!!!!!! I want my computer back!!!!!!!!!!!

    this is straight from microsoft with your error code,


    Error Message:
    STOP: 0x00000007 (parameter, parameter, parameter, parameter) INVALID_SOFTWARE_INTERRUPT
    Explanation:

    This is a Windows 2000 Executive character-mode STOP message. It indicates a level not within the software range.
    User Action:

    If this is the first time you have booted after installing new hardware, remove the hardware and boot again. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the hardware and its drivers are compatible with Windows 2000. For information about the hardware, contact the supplier. If you are installing Windows 2000 for the first time, check the Windows 2000 system requirements, including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. Also, check the Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the system can run Windows 2000. If Windows 2000 is loaded and no new hardware has been installed, reboot with recovery options set to create a dump file. If the message continues to appear, select the Last Known Good option when you reboot. If there is no Last Known Good configuration, try using the Emergency Repair Disk. If you do not have an Emergency Repair Disk, contact your technical support group.
