    Windows 8 Pro 64 bit


    I might be wrong but I thinking copying a large (multiple GB) file within the same partition (or drive) should also reveal the problem. Also, you can try downloading some other software other than Windows 8. They should also be easily corrupted if bad RAM is indeed the problem.

    You can remove 1 stick at a time and see if the problem gets solved. The chance of 2 bad sticks is relatively small. But if you want to do a more rigorous RAM test, the Memtest tool is something people have tried (I have little experience with it). Or you can borrow RAM that you know is "good".

    Other possible problems: bad HDD, bad cable, bad HDD controller. In my case I tried different cables, different hard drives, even a PCI controller. But none made any difference.
