Default windows problem

So I recently had a issue with my Windows 8 that prevented me from using my computer. I was happily editing an image on my Windows 8.1 PC when the whole computer crashed. So as anybody would I reset the computer to find a BSOD awaiting me on Bootup. The error code being "BAD_POOL_CALLER" which is from what I can understand a driver related issue. I could no access safe mode and windows repair was not picking up the issue.



So I then proceeded to format the hard drive using a Ubuntu (unmounted) disk with the application "Gparted" to format the hard drive to a Fat32 file system in a hope that whatever driver was causing the issue would be promptly deleted from the hard drive. Once I had formatted the HD to Fat32, I re-formatted it to NTFS to re-install a fresh version of Windows 7 on the HD.

So I installed this on to the HD with no issues at all, until it came to re-booting for the first time when I got the blue screen of death again but this time the cause was "0x049". So I let Windows try to repair the issue which unsurprisingly it could not figure out what was wrong. I have tried safe mode which does not work, I have tried all the "BootRec.exe" commands in the command prompt in system recovery options window. And nothing seems to help, does anybody know if this could be a problem with the hard drive as I tried it in another computer and it boots fine, so I am leading myself to believe it may be a problem with a BIOS driver?
