Error upon installing windows 7

I opened up my PC today and went to install windows 7. It told me it was ''installing devices'', this lasted for about 15 minutes so I restarted my pc. Windows is now giving me an error ''the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation''.
But when I restart my PC and click run windows normally, it just gives me the same error.
Am I doing something wrong?

Some help would be GREATLY appreciated, thank you

  1. you should not have restarted during install. reboot when it says press any key to boot from cd/dvd hit enter and start the process over and this time leave it alone until its done.....have patience.......
  2. try a fresh install again, if further issues test your hardware (hard drive, memory etc)

    if your hardware checks out its a software thing, in this case a bad disk, or could also be the drive not reading correctly or bad cable or power source even (PSU)
