"From the fact that a format with ""rewrite everything with zeros"" has crashed, it seems to me to indicate a hardware problem.

I would guess further that this is a problem with the hard drive. But it can be the disk, the cable, or even the controller on the motherboard. Under this hypothesis, some component that was anyway on the verge of failing, has collapsed because of the I/O required for the installation of Windows.

If I am right, then I am afraid that the trip to the Apple Store might be required."

I would do a memory test. It sounds like it could be a memory issue to me. Comment back if you do a memory test to let me know the results.
