Cannot install Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Hi everyone!
I am trying to do a clean install of windows 7 on my rig,installation goes smoothly until after the first restart at which point i get stuck in an endless rebooting loop on "starting windows" screen.Ive been able to boot into safe mode without restarts so i know it is most likely a driver issue however installation wont continue in safe mode and the only option i have is to restart.
I have now reinstalled windows xp which both installs and works fine.So far i have :
-tested RAM with memtest - 0 errors
-tested harddrive with chkdsk - again,0 errors
Can anyone help? And sorry for my bad english.

You could use:

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

To test for any corrupted or missing drivers.

What is your hard-drive model and make? Where are you installing Windows 7 from?

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

You could create a new Windows 7 Installation DVD/Bootable USB Flash Drive by using the .ISO file within the tutorial, and then installing Windows 7 from the DVD/USB.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? How?

Try running the installer from XP to overwrite C, report back.

Put the DVD in the drive and run it from the XP desktop, selecting C to install upon.

Try replacing the RAM stick now to see if it is recognized and works - sometimes it only needs to be removed for install. You can also swap slots. Then I'd stress test it overnight with memtest CD.
