Vista Bluescreens already on installation

Hi there. I got Vista Ultimate (German version).
Before I checked my system using the upgrade advisor and it gave me an OK.
I startet installation, but as soon as it starts completing it after the reboot (and probably detects and installs hardware devices) i get bluescreens. The bluescreens do not tell of any error cause or module that caused it. The only thing I found out using WinDBg is "Probably caused by : ntkrpamp.exe" and that it was because trying to access a part of the memory not allowed (paging fault?). The Debug code is often different though.
I eventually manage to get through the installation and on the desktop, installed all available updates but that only seemed to worsen the problem.
The bluescreen randomly appears, often on startup (even before setup had finished, i could not even use the secure mode then because it told me to complete the installation first), and if it manages that at a random point of using windows the first few minutes.
I tried taking out non-essential hardware like a dvb- and audio-card, using my old video card (Nvidia 6800GT) or deactivating some on-board devices such as firewire using the bios.
Nothing worked. So all I could figure out was that it was caused by either the motherboard or the cpu. The memory most likely not because the memory test of vista gave me an ok on that too.
Here my specs:
Motherboard: Abit AX8 V2
CPU: Athlon 64 x2 3800+
Ram: 2x Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO (http://www.corsairmicro.com/corsair/products/specs/TWINX2048-3500LLPRO.pdf)
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 7900 GTX
Soundcard: Creative Audigy 2
TV-Card: Technotrend S2-3200 HDTV-S2
DVD Drive: Plextor PX-716A
Harddrives: 2x 200gb Seagate Barracuda and 1x 300gb Seagate Barracuda. all normal ATA (not sata)
Can anybode help me on this problem?
