Windows 7 Installation problem

I recently bought a new intel board DG41RQ Essential series and when i try to install windows 7 on it after the final step of its installation when it reboots the cursor keeps blinking and the windows doesn't even starts and the same happens to windows vista but windows XP
works fine on it.Does it have anything to do with the BIOS?

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)
 
 

I could have to do with a lot of different hardware that is connected during installation.
What video card, monitor, a second monitor ?

nvidia geforce 9400 GT 512 MB.
i am using view sonic monitor and don't have a second monitor.
i have two sticks of kingston ram 512 MB each.
I bought a new board because my old board was dead on which i was having windows 7 installed alongside xp and were working perfectly but since i bought a new board win 7 and vista don't work only xp does.

Try removing your nvidia geforce 9400 GT 512 MB & USE the onboard video.

Reinstall nvidia geforce 9400 GT 512 MB when Windows 7 is working OK.

I believe theog is suggesting to use the onboard video. Good idea.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update.

What is the SATA controller setting? Try AHCI, then IDE if necessary.

OR
