   Your hardware or your kernel configuration.
   Whatever you do as non-root, cannot reboot the machine.
   Does it crash the machine with RedHat 7.0 too?

   Check your kernel configuration. Maybe you have a chipset that has a
bug and you need to recompile your kernel with a special option.
   Ask for help on the RedHat mailing lists.
   Check your hardware. Run memtest86 to check the memory for instance,
   Maybe try to run a benchmark tool on Windows to stress the hardware
(especially I/O aspects) and see if it's stable on Windows or if it
crashes on Windows too. If it crashes on Windows too then it's even more
likely to be a hardware problem (if not it does not mean much though).
