    Can't install Windows 8 64bit


    I'm having trouble Windows 8 64bit on a computer. It gets near the end and when it comes to restarting, get this error code 0xc0000001 and saying windows failed to install. Also tried installing Windows XP and it does the same and also another hard drive to see if it was that but it still does it.

    The computer is a mix of new and old bits from an other computer i used...

    CPU - Intel 750 2.66ghz - old
    Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 - old
    Memory - 8gb - old
    Hard drive - Seagate 350gb - New
    Graphics Card - Nvidia GF210 - New

    Don't understand why it won't install windows cos part of this computer worked fine and now something is wrong even though hasn't been used for a few months.

    Please help.

So I upgraded to Windows 8 from XP via unlock key without CD, forgetting that it'd be 32bit too..
