Did you install the MB drivers from the Disc that came with the new MB ? NewEgg is very good to deal with regarding problems of defective mdse.

A few other things to try at this point:

If it appears the reboot loop is caused by failure during device driver-loading and startup phase, boot into Device manager to try uninstalling suspect devices starting with Display Adapter. This may allow it to start so you can install the correct driver. Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

Try setting HD as first boot device, then boot installer using BIOS one-time Boot Menu.

Try setting SATA controller to AHCI first, then IDE mode if neccessary.

Try removing all but 2gb of RAM, then swap sticks.

You can install Win7 to HD on another computer (with it's HD unplugged) then move it back to problem machine, boot Paragon Adaptive Restore CD to remove all drivers and prepare it to start on new hardware.

Or take an image of any Win7 install of your version with Acronis with Universal Restore, reimage to the HD and it will start up, change Product key at Computer>Properties or by running slmg -ipk (type Product Key)

Ok guys so I did a quick swap over and sure enough it booted up fine! Im stoked so far, the part that was after it usually rebooted was when it check video performance so like you guys said its probably the 46" lcd or just the video in general. So im going to swap it again then it should be good ill keep you guys posted thanks guys!!

Ok guys expire that last post of mine, so after it booted up completely same thing happened it rebooted then is doing the same problem as before on the other motherboard. Its wierd because everything was working 100% before I installed it into this motherboard, bad luck I guess. So I guess I routed out the problem being the mobo right? I format all my computers every 3-5 months and have never had this problem its a pain in the butt, and I really appreciate all the help guys you guys are all super helpful!

So im going to try using gregs solution with the driver removal and device disabling hopefully that will work.

Let us know how it goes.

Try also wiping the HD first using Diskpart from the DVD's Repair console Command Line: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Ok so kinda wierd something I didnt see before, when I go to format Disk 0 Part 1 under install windows, it has the exclamation point saying windows cannot be installed on this disk because my computers hardware may not support booting to this disk and to ensure that disk controller is enabled. any ideas if this could be the cause?

Boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to see if you have a Dynamic Disk. If so, convert to Basic from Disk tab. You can also wipe the HD from there as you should before trying install. Free Download Magic Partition Manager Software - Partition Wizard Online

Use the DVD Custom>Drive options to partition and format: Clean Install Windows 7
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Try setting SATA controller in BIOS setup to AHCI first, then IDE mode if necessary.

Ok did that trick and it worked its completely booted up, to mention I actually used my old mobo without the 4850 but with integrated video to do it. I also had it plugged via VGA into my projector instead of my 46" lcd. So it might actually be the video card eh?

Ok so I put the drive back into the new asrock mobo and it booted up once then I restarted after it installed some drivers and asked me to reboot and it got stuck on a black blank screen after the windows is loading icon, So I booted into safe mode successfully and went to device manager and the driver that is missing is "Coprocessor", So I installed the win 7 drivers from asrock that went away and I think if I uninstall the windows video drivers and install the latest ati in safemode i should be set
