Windows 7: Win 7 installation stops

Win 7 installation stops

I have a pc that was running XP and all at once when I booted into XP, the desktop would come up and I could not do anything like opening a shortcut, so I decided to install a copy on Win 7 that I had purchased for this pc. It shows "Windows is loading files" then the next screen says "starting windows" and nothing happens after that. I left the pc on that screen for 1 and 1/2 hours and it still was stuck there. I have change motherboards, processors and CDROM and I just can't move along either with XP or installing Win 7.

Any suggestions?? Thanks!

Are you doing a Clean Install, formatting the drive during the install? If not, try it.

Hard drive may be defective. Does the hard drive show in BIOS Setup?

I was not patient enough to let the files to load! It seemed to be taking to much time and I was in a hurry!
