Startrep.exe – Application error. The instruction at 0x73a0ffa6 reference at 0xcc034008. Memory could not be read. This message appears after some minutes passed after choosing to install an OS. My Intended Operating System would be windows 7. Unfortunately i have this error always appearing. I tried installing the os to another Desktop and it worked fine. I therefore suspect that the hardware of my Desktop could be the one causing the problem. The image below describes the error i always encounter. Please help.
Startrep.exe – Application Error. Memory is unreadable.
This error usually occurs when you have corrupted files. Normally you can fix this by simply running check disk but since this error appears upon installation, that is not possible so you need a different solution. First when you install the OS, first thing you can try is partitioning the drive then install the OS on the partitioned drive (instead of installing at drive C choose drive D) this might fix this because if there are bad clusters on the drive, your computer will no longer try to write on it.
If you have multiple drives, its also a good idea to swap your primary and slave (making your slave as primary and vice versa). Then try to install OS on the newly swapped drive and see what happens.
