Windows could not configure one or more system component. Tom install wondows, restart the computer and then restart the installation (done twice or three times now)

But at what step does error appear? Clean Install Windows 7

Yes, clear CMOS next.

Do you have confidence in the installer? It wouldn't hurt to download the latest and burn to DVD, then write to flash stick so you eliminate that as possibility.

As part of clearing CMOS, try both AHCI mode and IDE mode which also sometimes solves this error.

it usually gets to step 9 or 10 it never gets to me entering the product key (it also needs to install the network ethernet so it cant connect untill i install them)

Test the HD using HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check run from installer's Command Line.

Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 3-6 passes or overnight. Remove all but 2gb to try install. Swap sticks, look for debris in RAM slots.

Good idea to get some sleep so you'll be fresh resetting the BIOS. See you tomorrow.
