when installing windows vista or 7 black screen with mouse?

I go a computer in today and it needed a chkdsk then maybe a repair so I was looking for the vista disk and couldnt find it my boss told me to put in a XP disk and just run chkdsk so i put it in pressed R then type chkdsk /P /R it stopped at 58 percent and it was the end of my shift so i left and the next afternoon i came back and it has a BSOD so i restarted it and winload.exe was missing or corrupted so my boss finally gave me the vista disk and I popped it in booted from the CD/DVD drive and all it does is go to a black screen with the cursor. So confused I put the XP disk back and it started booting properly...Whats going on?

Hi Genesis4455

When you put window vista or 7 in, did you set your system to boot from the CD ROM device?
In order to do that, when you start your system, go into bios and set CD ROM to be primary starting device, that will make sure your system boot from the CD but not hard drive.
