If this was a PC/Hardware issue, wouldn`t the PC freeze while in DoS?

Thanks for trying to help me guys.

You may have boot sector corruption or infection. Try wiping the HD to clean reinstall Win7: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation - Windows 7 Forums

Now I`ve formatted the HDD with Samsungs own tool, so I don`t think I can get it any cleaner. Anyway, now I can`t get passed the code 5 error when trying to boot the Windows 7 CD - caused by the BiOS/Motherboard I`ve heard. Is there a walk-around? The first time I used the Vista Recovery CD(already had Vista installed).

Weird, Its only Windows that freezez. Linux for example works fine.

What I think I`m looking for, would be a bootable CD with ms-dos and CD-rom drivers

then I can just switch CD`s and run SETUP.exe.

Looks like I`m not the only one having trouble installing Windows 7 with this motherboard.

Try install from USB flash stick: Install UltraISO trial version, on File tab open ISO or DVD, on Bootable Tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write. Boot under HD's or USB.

I kinda gave up trying to install a fresh and clean instance of Windows 7, so I tried with Windows Vista again, but not giving me this error ->

the file is possibly corrupt. the file header checksum does not match the computer checksum

Something must be seriously wrong... All Ive done is a low level format.
