Hello,
Try this 1
When the prompt appears asking you to select the OS then select Windows 7 and press the F8 key. Select the option "Safe Mode" and let us know if you are able to boot into it without any problem.
Good Luck

Hello,

Try this 1.

1) Place the Windows 7 disc in the drive and boot from it.

When "Press any key to boot from the Windows 7 installation DVD" appears,

press any key to start booting from installation disc.

Note: If you failed to boot from the installation disc then make sure first boot

device is set as CD\DVD Drive.

2) When the language preference appears, click on Next.

3) When "Install Now" appears --> Click on "Repair your computer" found at the

bottom.

4) Click on "Next" --> Select the option "Use recovery tools that can fix problems

starting Windows" and click on "Next" --> When "System Recovery Options"

appear --> Select the option "System Restore" and follow the instructions.

Good Luck.
