Default Troubleshooting new computer build

Okay I have posted before about this build and now I am having issues trying to install windows 7.

I have a new mobo, ram and hard drive. The HD has nothing on it. I attempted to install Windows 7 full version. When I start the pc i can get to the bios no problem. I then have it boot to CD.

Sometime right off the bat it goes to blue screen other times in the middle of install. The error is the same every time:
The error is: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - STOP: 0x0000000A

I have tried only one stick of Ram instead of three. I also tried a 2nd new hard drive which is the exact same as the 1st one (western digital caviar black 500gig).

Is there something normally wrong when you get this error or a basic troubleshooting guide or something? Thanks for any help.
