Computer endlessly reboots when trying to install windows 7

Hello everyone, I have a problem with a computer I just built. Everything seems to be running fine, the only problem is that after it loads the windows files to load into windows, the screen will freeze for about 5 minutes then reboot itself on the "Loading windows screen."

Anyone know what the potential problem could be?

Where did you get Win7? DId you burn the DVD yourself?

Confirm the ISO then burn another at 4x speed with ImgBurn.

Or install using a bootable flash stick: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install.

Do you have the latest BIOS version? Set SATA controller to AHCI.

Check with MSI, to see if this is one of the Sandy Bridge MOBO on RECALL.
