    Cant install windows 8 (page_fault_in_nonpaged_area (winFSF.sys)

    I downloaded all 3 versions of the developers release, tried to installed it with a DVDs and usb. None of them worked.

    On all my PCs the same thing. I think the downloads are corrupted somehow.

    How can i check it.

    1 thing i liked about windows 8. the new blue screen

    Use a file hash checker to check the file is not corrupt, the MD5 and SHA1 hash are listed on the MS Dev Preview site.

    File Hash Checker 1.1

    Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

    This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced.
    Bug check 0x50 usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, be it main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM).
    Another common cause is the installation of a faulty system service.
    Antivirus software can also trigger this error, as can a corrupted NTFS volume.

    If the hashes check out on your ISO then check your RAM with all cards installed.
    RAM- Test with Memtest86+
    Run a HDD check with the manufacturers testing program.
