Can't start up after Install restart

Today I decided to reinstall my windows 7 and did that. But when the install was finished so that i has to restart and continue the setup this happened.
As usual it say 15 seconds until restart then resarts and my computer get stuck on the startup screen (not on windows but in my case the motherboard welocme msg[the very first screen you see with press DEL to enter setup])

I tried everything but I even can't get into BIOS...

I am out of ideas. Can you please help me?

Hey Head,
Can you start up from your installation DVD or do you not have the option to do so? You may have to flash your BIOS. Pending your next response ill find you a guide to doing so.

Let us know,

Try wiping your HD before reinstalling. You may have code that is interfering:

If it again fails to start and you cannot enter BIOS, then find your latest BIOS version update on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or mobo and flash it following the Read Me instructions carefully.

But try wiping the HD first as it often solves problems. However not being able to enter BIOS is worrisome and may only be solved by flashing to latest version.

After giving up I gave my pc to a friend's shop nextdoor and he told me that it's the HD's fault. Then he told me that he is going to do something that takes 10 hours (I couldn't hear because we were talking on the phone and the connection was bad) and after those 10 hours he is going to do something else which I couldn't hear either...
So now after the 10 hours are over I am waiting for a call.

But thanks for the help! Next time this happens I will now what to do.
Thank you.
I will update you when my computer get back home
