Reason why I did the install is that whenever windows xp would load and I would be on for maybe 1-5mins before it just turns off and restarts. I was running Windows XP, decided to install windows 7 with the current problems I am having with XP. The installation is going fine, I decide to just delete all partitions and start new, and once I finish the install at the end with the serial and the one more restart - should be good. Now it will just stay in post and restart over and over again without ever getting to the windows splash screen. I cannot even run ubuntu correctly, the same thing occurs. once it seems like it has been a successful install it will loop at post so the only way I am on here is using it through the cd as a live session user. What are some things I can do, I don't want to have my Dad go and buying the wrong stuff so ill wait it out.
