The error of the Blue Screen reads exactly:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If this is the first time youve seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware of software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000000A (0xD0C03C08, 0X00000001, 0X00000000, 0X807F0773)"

"Beginning dumpof physical memory

It looks like you have a hardware conflict. Perhaps you didn't completely delete the whole drive? Try running the CD again and select format the drive for installation.
