Need help with computer that only starts in windows 7 basic.

I have a new built pc with msi mainboard amd fx6100 cpu 8gig mushkin blackline ram ocz 550w psu and a power color 7850. my issue is from a cold start i.e. turning on for the first time it only starts in windows 7 basic, if once its on i can restart it and then everything is fine it starts normally. i have sent the graphics card and mainboard with cpu and ram back to the manufactures for testing but came back with no fault found. put it all back together and tried it with a geforce gt640 and still have the same issue...
