    BSOD on install: ntfs_file_system


    When I try to install windows 8 preview on my old computer, I keep getting a BSOD and it says this " ntfs_file_system "

    The reason why I'm installing windows 8 on old computer is because I'm having issues with it (mainly i can't install any Microsoft Office,random freezing,, and sumtimes can't even boot)). I didn't know if it was a software problem (windows xp) or hardware (my main suspect is the HDD). I downloaded the windows 8 tool to check if it is compatible and it said yes. Also, there's no spare hard drive for me to test.

    I'm trying to install the release preview.

    My old computer specs:
    OEM emachines computer W3506

    1.5 Gb of ram DDR
    ATI X200
    160 GB hdd (not sata)
    Intel Celeron D 356 3.33 ghz

    You might want to run a memory tester on that RAM, try Memtest 86.

    for memtest 86, is it like furmark where I just run it as long as possible and post results? Or the test will have a duration and post results after it's done?

    EDIT: ran
    Memory Diagnostics Tool instead and right away it said it found issues.
