Windows 7: New Win7 install hangs at initial logo

Win7 Home Premium 64bit
New Win7 install hangs at initial logo

Hello everyone, and thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I am not new to building computers, I have been doing it for more than 20 yrs now. I have never seen this before. I am installing Win7 Home Premium 64bit on a brand new machine. When I boot the computer and press any key to boot from the CD, it starts and says "Starting Windows". The four little color balls start to form into a circle but freeze before even forming into the first circle. That's it. Nothing else happens, no beeps, no error codes, etc.

This is an MSI Z87-G41 motherboard with a Core i5-4690K cpu, 16Gb of RAM, a 250Gb SSD (system disk) and a 3Tb data disk.

Update: I booted with logging and it looks like its hanging after loading disk.sys
