Have you tried doing a factory restore on your previous Windows installation and then doing it on a completely new factory reset PC?

Have you tested the health of your hard drive ?

Ran a scan of the drive surface, checking for bad sectors ?

Have you checked the tightness of the hard drive ?

Have you tried reseating the RAM ?

It does seem like a hardware/driver problem.

This seems to be a common error with windows 7 as well as windows 8 and generally it's your RAM or Bios settings as far as I can see. Take the RAM out and make sure that it's seated properly (Try one module at a time and see if that get's you past this error.) Run a mem test and see what happens! What sort of RAM do you have, do you know? Also in the BIOS reset everything to default, if you are using AHCI reset this back and save again. Make sure that the RAM timings and Voltages are correct for the memory type that you have installed on the PC.

I get the same error on a Dell Dimemsion 8300, the Dell 8300 will Install and run Windows 7 with no problems.

As above definitely make sure your BIOS is set to defaults and then set up to stock clocks / settings, no overclocking

Just a note on USB installs. If your USB stick supports read only mode, do not enable it. For some reason, USB install's for windows 7/8 write a install log to the USB stick.

I use the usb tool from the microsoft store to make mine... very nice tool... and I never use the read only mode thing... but thanks for telling everyone ;)

Looks like you have a processor thay is older than the NX bit flag in Intel processors providing DEP protection. If so, you cannot install Windows 8 on systems with those processors. Verify your processor as this is similar to what will happen on install.

did not see the IRQ NOT LESS EQUAL, check memory if you can and hard disk. are you installing x32 or x64?

I get the same error on a Dell Dimemsion 8300, the Dell 8300 will Install and run Windows 7 with no problems.

Not sure if he dimension line is numbered in line with the inspiron line, but I had to install 7 on an inspiron 8600. The Pentium M in it does not have the NX bit.

Try installing under IDE mode for SATA devices (Can be switched back to AHCI later after installing the drivers).

Check you have the latest version of your BIOS installed - many are releasing updates for Windows 8 compatibility (especially Dell and HP).

Yea did that thing too.

But still with the same problem

Ran a scan of the drive surface, checking for bad sectors ?

It does seem like a hardware/driver problem.

i Will be checking the health using diagnostic tools from WD.

scan ?? like what kind of & through which software ??

i havent opened it the case.

The RAM is 4GB, i t came defualt with 2GB, but the vendor removed that 2GB & installed a new Transcend 4GB single module

What media are you installing from?

i tried installing from USB as well as DvD

i also tried switching to IDE, but still the same problem

The BIOS setting is default, i just flashed a new updated version of BIOS from ACER.

I havent changed any settings since then.

There is also another version of BIOS {UEFI for Win 8} but that thing doesnt update, gives an error.

i think that it would be upgradable once i install win 8

i am installing 32BIT version.

i also tried 64-bit version.

But same error.

Memory is Transcend 4GB single module

Sounds like it's faulty installation media. If it's a burnt disc, reburn it again at a slower speed.

You will need to wipe your entire hard drive so you can install Windows 8. You can install all your other operating systems after you do so, if that doesn't work, I don't know what else will.

I would recommend creating a USB installer and try installing using that. Quicker and more reliable than optical media.

If all else fails you can always try talking dirty to it.

i've used around 4-5 dvds for the purpose.

& many USB.

But still the same error

IRQL BSOD usually means faulty hardware or software, if you have tried burning it multiple times and from USB then its usually a hardware error and most probably faulty RAM.

I have read every comment and the only thing comes to my mind is that your ISO is corrupt. Check the hash/sda and compare to the real one!

That could be the problem!!
