Windows 7 refuses to install

just got a new motherboard and wanted to reinstall windows 7 64bit
but the installer just keeps freezing on me , not crashing ,just after windows loads the files and then the windows 7 wallpaper comes but then nothing happens after that i can still move the mouse so is not crashed like i said.
i tried installing the other way from inside windows but once it copys all the files then reboot it freezes again, but this time with the words "windows is being installed" or something along those lines

i really would appreciate if someone could solve this for me im out of ideas except installing it on my hardrive on someones else pc then put the hdd back in my pc but its a pain in the a**

so someone come to the rescue and earn some rep

Or is it another mobo.

If you are doing a upgrade from windows desktop, this could take 5 hours.

I would first try to drain the power from the board by unplugging the power supply and hitting the start button. Sometimes that will fix the problem, if not unplug and clear the power again by pushing the start button but this time try clearing the cmos and then try to install Windows 7 again. Be sure and reset everything in bios to how it was before and you may also need to enable your sata drives.
