Windows 7: Pc reboots after Windows 7 Splash

I downloaded the iso file which matches my version of windows, but when i put it onto my external hardrive it added 2 more boot devices, OEM and Virtual CDROM, both of these options end up giving me a black screen with the cursor then a restart, i also tried startup repair with these 2 but still end up with only 1 recovery tool
If it helps, i put everything thats on my external hard drive into a hidden folder then put the iso into the external hard drive, i didnt extract it or anything

With an ISO you are supposed to create a bootable CD.

Place a blank CD in your optical drive, then double click on the .iso file and in Windows 7 you will be guided through the process of burning a disk.

If you have Nero or a similar CD burning program you can use that instead if you wish.

Follow the tutorial I posted a link too. It tell you to make a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, not an external USB hard drive.

Report back after you get one or the other. CDs are 700MB, you'll need a DVD as pointed out it the tut. They are 4.7GB.

Ok, i decided to just shove my not working HDD into a working pc, take any files that i need, reinstall windows 7 with the CD i finally found under my Bed (wtf?), and then shove the crap that i backed up back into my pc
This saved me lots of pointless stuff that i needed to do...
