What do you mean by, "by some miracle"?
If this is hacked version, then theres a problem.

Can you boot into System Restore?

I didn't hack my products, I got it from the university store, and I figure that it's a full version. It is legit, and I can post a picture of the disk. We're only allowed to buy one copy and it comes in a cheap little wrapper like you'd see in a CD case. The reason I say a miracle is because after trying countless times of trying to install SP1 It would either fail or bluescreen. Then somehow I just randomly decided to give it another go earlier today and it went through like there wasn't even a problem. I booted up and it was fine for about 15 mins then it bluescreened again. After that one though I haven't been able to even boot from disk or boot startup repair. I've never had this serious of a problem with a computer. Especially with all new hardware.

Hello,

It sounds as if there is some hardware trouble going on here. Registry hives getting corrupted, file system trouble, Windows Updates not getting installed correctly...

Start with some hardware diagnostics, namely HD and RAM tests.

As for the borked Windows installation, you can try to revert using a system restore from the Windows DVD. If that doesn't help, give the Startup Repair a few runs.

well the stupid thing is, is that I found out the drive was defective.. so I replaced it. and I'm still unable to boot from CD. It just bluescreens.. What else could be causing this? is there a way to reset bios or something?

Resetting the CMOS is worth a shot; see here: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways To Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

As far as actually resetting the BIOS goes, all you can do is flash the BIOS.

The BSOD is a Windows feature; if you're not in Windows, you won't see the actual BSOD. Could you take a picture of the screen you're seeing?

Thank you for the help guys, and I can see why you would be just as confused as I am with what was going on. Apparently out of all of the new equipment I've purchased. My graphics card, one of my dual channel ram, and my solid state hard drive were defective. Previously my problem was with a broken motherboard as well. I've never had so many things go out on a computer in a new build. Thank you very much for the help, but I have discovered that the hardware was causing the trouble this entire time.
