Windows 7: Cant boot windows, wiped hdd, tried to clean install now stuck in loop

Cant boot windows, wiped hdd, tried to clean install now stuck in loop

So i have made a huge and horrible mistake. im not sure what exactly caused this but today i booted up windows it would take a super long time on the windows flashing colors screen and then just freeze. so i was like whatever ill just reinstall windows it doesnt matter ive been wanting to anyways. so i install it and it still happens on the boot screen. i say wtf, and thought maybe something on hdd was causing it so i format my hard drive, try to install windows again, bad decision there. I cant use startup repair because it says noosinstalled even though i have installed it it just wont boot. ive tried bootrec.exe and nothing really happens it says successful but yeah its not. cant get in safe mode, nothing. in the install ive gotten as far as it saying completing installation but then nothing it just does the whole boot like normal and freeze on color screen. i remember vaguely seeing an error message saying it couldnt detect which hard drive to use or something like that from my first installation but that message hasnt come back since. i clicked try again on it and it auto restarted my comp and thats when the problem got serious. Im trying to give as much info as possible as i am just stumped. i havent installed ANYTHING new whatsoever and my computer is well kept. i really dont think the hdd could be a problem because its been working fine no signs of probs whatsoever before this.

I take it you have a Windows 7 DVD, whether OEM or MS blue-disk - no matter. Forget Startup Repair. After you boot that Windows 7 DVD, after choosing US keyboard, etc., what choices are presented to you on the next menu screen?
