Spifkie, Welcome to SevenForums
What OS was installed on your new PC out of the box? And where did you get your Windows Seven DVD? Could be possible that you may need to wipe your hard drive and also build a smaller partition to install to. Try this tutorial. Good luck to you with this problem.

Another error message while trying to install:
fvevol.sys

And @myzr7
Thank you.
My PC was not installed with any OS out of the box, As usually (From my experience) It doesn't go with so much trial and error (Mostly error here though)
I got the DVD from my dads PC, He never used it since he prefers Windows XP over Windows 7.
And wiping my hard drive doesn't matter, Because its empty already anyway.

No it isn't empty now.

You have Win 7 on it plus possibly multiple partial copies. Best I can figure you tried now at least 4 installs.
Three without a wipe or reformat just on top of the last one.
You need to wipe it and reformat the drive.

So follow what Myzr7 posted here.

I thought it would wipe with regular re install but you need the more thorough method above.

Is that a retail DVD?

I thought you said you already installed partially, it really wont hurt to try what myzr7 has suggested, BSOD's are usually hardware or driver related.

If you can clear your drive and start fresh it may work.

Here's some info on your errors,

acpi.sys is corrupted

And the second one,

Fvevol.sys corrupted; Windows won't boot

He needs the wipe. He has at least 3 possibly 5 reinstall attempts.

Then if he still has a problem we will know it isn't the OS install.

First of all, Im going for diner.
And i forgot, Merry christmas!

I just managed to get it installed and completed, By pulling the disk out when its going to restart. So another point reached i would say.
I am now going to insert the Motherboard and Video card driver CD To install the drivers.
Wish me luck.

PS, I have no other half Windows 7 installations, I format the hard drive before i installed it the last time.

I agree, that's why I said it wouldn't hurt to follow myzr7's advice.

Anyway he seems to be on the right track according to his last post.
