    Windows 7 Ultimate crashing on Bootcamp
    So i got this finally installed on bootcamp and it keeps on crashing. This was the problem before, i installed a different version of windows 7 on bootcamp and if i were to run an application it would randomly crash, dump physical memory and reboot my mac.

    So I repartitioned my drive and got a different version of windows 7 because someone suggested that it could be a dodgy version of windows, I install it all and get it working and it is working fine but its its crashing just like before and just as i thought finally i got this thing to work

    Can anyone help me? Why the heck is this crashing its so frustrating

    *O and when it does crash the fans are going like crazy and my macbook is pretty hot

    Where are you getting these versions of Windows from? What kind of Mac do you have? What are the specs? Is the Mac stable under OS X? Do the crashes happen immediately after a clean install of Windows?

    Clean install meaning you created the partition through Boot Camp and then you used the Windows 7 disc to do a fresh install of Windows. Once completed, is it stable or does it become unstable immediately?

    Where did both the Windows 7's you installed come from? Microsoft? Store? Download and if so from where.

    I have found in helping 100's of people with this that the biggest issue with Windows on a Mac Via Bootcamp has been a pirated copy.
