Windows 7 installation error.

Hey. I got my windows 7 installation cd today. and I put it into my brand new windows vista computer. the installation started, but then it suddently stopped where it said "the computer has to be restarted". After having this message on the installation screen for 15 min I clicked the off button on the computer, and started it again.

Then the nightmare began, when the computer starts, it says: "starting installation" - then the error message - "The installation process cannot be started". if I click ok. the computer restarts and the same happends. if I X it. the computer restarts and the same happens. Im completely stuck with this error and cant either go back to vista or keep installing windows 7.
Please help.

Tried to hold down F8 when it starts, but nothing happens. For now I just want to go back to vista.

in most of these solutions they expect that you atleast can interact with the computer in some way. I just want to do a huge system restitution so I get back to windows vista and get the windows 7 installation interrupted and away from my computer. but I cant do anything else than clickin "OK" and let it start again so the same thing happens again.

You don't know what kind of computer you have? Did you buy this brand new computer from HP, Dell, etc, or did you assemble it yourself? If you bought it assembled, and it's from HP, Dell, etc, then you can look at your invoice and see what parts are inside and the model number of the computer. If you assembled it yourself, you can look at the various invoices and post the model numbers, etc.
