Fresh windows 7 install will not load
I was having some problems with my computer so i decided to reinstall windows 7. Its not the first time i have done this so i thought nice and easy...
I booted from the windows 7 disc and formatted the partition that windows 7 was already running on. Then continued with the install. Im installing x32.
It went through everything fine and the installation completed and then it restarted itself and showed starting window then the screen just went blank. The mouse is there but it will not go any further.
If i run start in safe mode i get the screen saying setup is preparing your computer for first use but then an error message comes up saying cannot complete installation in safe mode.
I have tried reformatting and doing the process again but it doesnt work, I have tried to repair the installation but nothing seems to work...

It may be failng to load a Device Driver. Follow these steps to enter Device Manager to uninstall any devices which show to be in error, to see if Installation will complete: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation
Unplug all peripherals and other HD's.
If this fails, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.
Set SATA controller to AHCI.
Wipe the HD first to Clean the boot sector: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Where did you get Windows 7? Is this a known-good installation DVD? If not and you burned it yourself, burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed. Next try writing to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu.
