Windows 7 continues restarting after successfull formatting

My hardware config is as follows :
  1. Mother Borad - ZEB G31 (ZEB-G31 - Motherboards - Zebronics - Always Ahead - Largest Range of Peripherals)
  2. Intel Pentium 4 CPU of 2.93 GHz
  3. 2 GB DDR2 RAM
  4. 250 GB SATA HDD
I want to install Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit on my computer.
The problem is that after I cleanly and successfully install the OS in my hard disk, the system restarts. Then as normal procedure it shows the customizing your desktop screen. But after showing it for approz 10 sec, the computer restarts again and this continues again and again.

Can anyone help me out?

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

Try removing a stick of RAM to try install. Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+.

Next wipe the HD with Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command to try install.

Reset the BIOS to defaults. Set SATA controller to AHCI to try install.

Thanks gregrocker. I tried you advice and it works.
I don't know what the problem was. But what I did is as you said I backed up my data, erased the existing partition table and created a new one - one primary and other three logical.
Then I installed the OS on the primary partiotion and it works just fine.
