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.
Yes +1. Any BSODs during install are 99.9 % hardware related. Bad ram, improperly seated HSF, etc.
