I had blue screens during the windows 7 install and it was due to a stick of ram that was bad. I'd been using that ram for two years without blue screens in Vista. I guess 7 is just more sensitive to bad memory.
Already tested the memory back in August. I had bought OCZ Reaper and it was defective. GOT new RMA ram, and got a perfect score. no bad ram.

Got one BSOD today, a fault in NTFS.sys
