Windows 7 Home Pre. 32bit clean install reboot issue

Howdy, I'm trying to install Win 7 HP on my computer and It gets through everything until it has to reboot, the first reboot works, and the second time it reboots it says that the computer didn't shut down properly.

It goes to a blue screen (not of death) for a little bit but It goes by too fast for me to read. Then I get the generic Windows Error Recovery screen with safe mode etc.

Emachines W3052

AMD Sempron Processor 3000+ 1.99 GHz
2G DDR Ram
120 GB HD (IDE)

Compatibility check says it's fine when I had XP on it, I had to format because it used to not get past the copying files part (I have everything on ext hard drive anyway). Halp me...

Where do I find my specs? I can fill out some of that but I have a hard time with some of this stuff, even after a computer hardware class and several programming classes.

EDIT: Spec updated to the best of my ability so far. I just can't stand abreviations like CPU and PSU idk what that means... If the CPU is my processor why doesn't it just say Processor I dont know the difference but that's what I put in there...

If formatting helped you get aways further in the install, then try cleaning the HD for it to have the cleanest possible slate: Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from Support Downloads webpage for your model eMachine.

Try clearing the CMOS: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixthe.../clearcmos.htm

I've done The CMOS thing, no help there. And I don't have an OS to check the disk thing for the first one.

I'm really new at all of this since I've never had a problem with putting an OS on a computer, not to mention I have a mildish case of dyslexia so reading all of the text that everyone seems so accustomed to posting is incredibly hard for me.

When I look up all of my questions on google or anywhere for that matter every sollution assumes that the computer i'm using has an OS so since I don't step one "click start" is kind of a tricky one. So how do I check my BIOS? It goes by too fast for me to read.

I can get a command prompt from boot, but how do i get from there to Elevated command prompt?

Try a full clean & full format.
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Create New
1) Boot DVD.
2) Press Shift+F10 (for command prompt)

Type in command line
DISKPART
LIST DISK OR List Volume (If you have partitions)
SELECT DISK # (win HD)
CLEAN ALL
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT=NTFS
ASSIGN
EXIT
EXIT

Theog has been good enough to post up the steps for cleaning your HD, so try that approach first.

I read all of that but my issue remains I don't have start. Everything says press start, but I don't have start. The ONLY command prompt i can get to is the windows seven one. Unless I'm reading this wrong I need to be in elevated command prompt, which can't (from what I'm reading) be got to from that command prompt. Safe mode with command prompt wont work because it needs an actual OS apparently, remind you I have no OS or a disk to get one besides the one i'm having issues with. Can I clean from that X:\system (or what ever it says)?
