Windows 7: New Computer Cant Install Windows 7

New Computer Cant Install Windows 7

I just bought a new PC from NewEgg . Windows 7 installed fine and booted up great the first time but when I go to reboot, it hangs on the windows logo and than reboots itself.

I have tried reinstalling about 10+ times. I have tried 64bit and 32 bit versions and I have tried 2 different HDDs. The problem isn't the disc because it installs great onto one of my HDDs on my other computer but when I switch that HDD to my new one, it freezes.

A weird problem I noticed was it booted Ubuntu perfectly fine.

Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated.

All Linux code must be deleted using the CLEAN ALL command.As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all & full format.

Do a full clean & full format in command prompt.

Type in command line

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Than install Windows 7.
