You're still not "pressing any key to start CD/DVD" are you ?

How much of the install completes? Does it go through the first or second restart? Is that when it starts over? If so, don't press any key when prompted except to first start the install.

The fail you describe sounds like it could also be a bad installer. Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Try burning another using ImgBurn at 4x speed with verify.

If this is a known-good installer, try wiping the HD of all boot sector code: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation - Windows 7 Forums

Do i have to instal my C: and D: drivers before i can instal windows 7? because if so i do not have a disk for those two drivers, they came with the factory computer when i bought it without the disks.
No the Win7 installer is driver-complete (this is not XP) with newer quickly arriving after install via optional Windows Updates.

A screen saying press any key to start CD/DVD never comes up on my screen so no i'm not pressing a key

and Gregrocker: the installation goes all the way to where it says installing updates then puts a check mark beside it and then takes me to a screen that says restarting computer to continue and i end up back where i started, also i bought this disk "New" off of Amazon.com i have replaced everything in my computer except my gfx card hard drive and cd/dvd drive so i don't know if hard drives have to be "compatiable" with the motherboard but i know the gfx card is.

Also, this screen both of you talk about where it says "Press any key to start CD/DVD" i never see any screen like that at all the only way my installation disk boots is it takes me to a screen with a lot of numbers and stuff that looks like listings and under it says "Analyzing DMI Pool Data.........."
Then like 5-10 minutes later under that i see CD/DVD Boot: and then my installation DVD is booted. and it does that every single time, right after it says "Restating computer to continue."

Try removing the DVD from the drive just as it says it is Restarting the Installation.

You have tried it both with DVD drive set first to boot, and HD set first to boot?

Normally this problem is solved by setting HD first to boot then using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key to trigger the DVD at the beginning of the install. This keeps it from recycling install at restart.

Do you have the latest BIOS update for your mobo? If so, try resetting the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Then set HD as first to boot.

You can also try installing from flash stick: Install UltraISO trial, on File tab open DVD, on Bootable tab Write Disk Img, Format, Write. Boot under USB or HD's.

I'm currently doing the thing with the diskpart where you clean all my HDD's so i can try those things after but i have A few questions, how do i use the one-time BIOS boot menu to trigger the DVD and how do i get the latest BIOS update for my mb?

Look on the Support Downloads webpage for your model mobo for the latest BIOS version. Read the information carefully about updating BIOS. If needed seek help on new mobo from their included Tech Support.

Most mobos have a one-time BIOS boot menu key given on first boot screen. This is often F12 on Giga mobos. I assumed you were using it or would have asked when first suggested since it solves this problem most times.

Googling your mobo also discovers Enabling Legacy USB in BIOS setup solves some of these problems.

It can be BBS (Bios Boot Screen), BIOS Boot Menu, one-time BIOS Boot menu, etc. It has different names on different mobos. Try F12.
