I have recently purchased a few computer parts and upgraded my computer. After putting it together, I
switched it on and went to install windows 7 (hardware changes stop me booting my previous installation). (Note: I was
previously using this windows 7 on my old mobo etc.) However, once it does the 'Loading Windows Files...' bit, I get an error

3. Click "repair your computer."

This occurs straight after the files have loaded,

no avail. I have also unplugged both my HDDs and also tried both of my DVD drives. I have also tried upgrading the BIOS to
version 1.4, which doesn't solve the problem. Any help or suggestions would be great, thanks.
Here are the new
parts to my system:

CPU:Intel Core i5 750 2.66Ghz (Lynnfield) (Socket LGA1156).
RAM: OCZ Obsidian 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 Dual Channel OCZ3OB1600LV4GK).
And I am trying to install Windows
