Thanks for the tip. I ran memtest86 all day today (about 4/5 cycles) and it didn't come up with any errors.

I'm going to try the installer on another motherboard to see if it's some odd motherboard/processor combo.

Thanks again.

Hi Todd,

Did you try testing your memory extensively? I've had bad memory work
fine in one OS and perform really badly in another. Memtest86
(http://www.memtest86.com/) has worked well for me in the past, but
I've had times when it wouldn't work, especially when the BIOS
reserves a chunk of memory that happens to be bad :)
