Windows 7: Computer keeps restarting during boot whilst installing

14 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit OEM
Computer keeps restarting during boot whilst installing

I have been trying to install Windows 7 Pro 64 OEM to my newly built machine on to my SSD drive.

It begins the install fine then when it goes to the windows logo on black (boot screen) and is updating the registry, it restarts and goes in to a restart loop. I have tried loads of different settings including the original BIOS settings. I Currently have it set up to boot from SSD drive first.

Why is it doing this? I have hunted around on forums but cant quite find the answer to my situation.

You can see the components I have on my profile. I have taken out the other HDDs for now but all the other hardware is including a LG CH10LS20 Internal DVD±R/RW & Bluray Combo SATA Drive.

I have been trying to do this all day and really want to get my new beat up and running I have a big project to do on it!!

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
