    BSOD during install on fresh wiped HDD

    So I was getting bsods before and had my HDD wiped. when attempting to install windows 8 I get a bsod. Not sure which as it is too quick to read. I have flashed the bios to the most recent version. But it still bsods. I tried using a known, good working HDD with windows installed and it still caused a bsod.
    Would this be a sign of bad ram?

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    As you've ruled out the hard drive, RAM is the next suspect - but it can also be problems with other devices.
    First try these bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
    If that doesn't find a problem, then start with this: Hardware Stripdown Troubleshooting
