Unable to boot/repair/install windows

Hi,

I have a problem with my laptop. I cannot boot Windows. While powering on I am prompted that I can run windows normally or repair it. No matter what I choose I am always stuck on black screen with only muse cursor. I have tried booting the safe mode, going back to last good configuration, and booting with low resolution and I always gets to the same issue. I have booted linux from usb without any problems, checked disk and ram and everything seems to work. I can access my files etc. I have burned the CD with windows installer, booted the CD and from there I wanted to repair the PC, it did not helped. Then I wanted to fresh install Windows, but after choosing language I am having a hang with "Setup is starting".

I was looking at similar issues on this forum and wanted to use:

Quote:
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT
But after typing DISKPART I am not getting to situation when I can start typing (diskpart freezes after displaying version, copyright and "on computer: MINWINPC").

What is strange for me is that I can see (DIR C:\) that C partition now contains my files (previously D:\) and that I cannot DIR D:\ (nothing displays unless I use Ctrl+C). Is it possible that this 2 partitions swapped?

There is a similar thread - Installation freeze on Setup is Starting... screen. It seems that clearing the whole disk in linux and then installing windows would help, but I'd rather consider this option as last hope.

Do you have any advices for me?

Thanks in advance
