Hello liad mate please some system specs mate we cannot help if we do not know what we are working with System Info - See Your System Specs

Now I am assuming this is quite an old machine and maybe there are a few hardware problems such as the hard drive RAM etc etc

Now the other thing is what Windows media (7) are you trying to use - a retail or OEM version. Going back to XP is a retrograde step if you want my opinion because of the age of the system and the lack of any support.

Haha i dont know how but i fixed it what i did is i pressed f12 when the computer boot to choose temporary device and i chose removeable disk or something like that and then it brought me to the screen that says if i want to start windows normally or safe etc.. and i chose last configuration and it worked LOL but thank you anyway
