What you are getting is not a BSOD, you are not even making it into Windows, as it sounds.
Might be having RAM voltage problems. Can you verify that all chips are 1.5V or 1.6V?
Also, has this happened since you put the RAM in, or after you put the SSD in? Did you try removing the SSD and just trying the RAM or vice versa?
Actually I am getting a BSOD, I did mention it above, but I tend to talk to much. Currently I have the older hard drive and only the 2 original RAM chips. So everything is as it was before I installed the new RAM, which is why I am so frustrated
I have tried using the Win8 and Win7 discs to get to recovery console (I saw that article too, thank you though) I will dig up an XP disc this morning and see if that will work. What happens is that Windows copies files and when it gets to the point where the "Welcome to Setup" is going to start... I get the BSOD. ARG!
Thanks to both of you for the feedback.
