Windows 7: First boot wont boot

Hi,

I've tried installing again and I still get the same issue. After the "Boot from cd/dvd" promt it drops a line and then nothing happens.

I then tried, using cute-partition, to flag the win 7 partition as the boot partition. from the default as win xp.

I also tried swiching my hdd's master and slave config, as well as their boot order in my bios. (when I chose the wrong hdd it gives me: ntldr missing instead of the usual nothing..)

Here is also a screenshot of Disk Management:

I'm trying to install to the P: partition. And after install changing the boot flag from D: to P:

I dont know why my C: partition says it is the system. Does it matter? how do I change it?

Is the png below current? It says C: is boot and system is on the second drive. You can tell by looking in c: (root) you should see several file (see png pic). While not critical having you comp have to look for bootmgr, and autexec, etc on c: then the rest of the system on the second drive has to slow down the boot somewhat.

PC powers on/off during boot, wont complete boot
It's a friends pc. I replaced the power supply but that did not fix it. It's not a virus cause it did allow me to install linux. So the cd rom worked through the install. The computer has a lot of dust in it. I was going to blow it out tomorrow. Could it just be dust? Any other ideas.
