Is the network setup?  If yes - check the network cable.

When your computer starts wait for the message, "Starting MS-Dos" and hit the F8
function key. This will allow a step by step debugging of your config.sys and autoexec.bat.  Hit y for each line and let me know if you get any error messages.

When you do the step-by-step, I think you will find it is stopping at the windows drivers install point.  And I would sustpect the problem is a  video driver incompatiblility.

As SAREV indicates, reboot, and press F8 as soon as you see
the "starting MS DOS" message.  Say 'Y' to everything
_except_ for the 'WIN' command.  You should see a 'C::\' prompt.
Enter 'WIN /B' and Windows will start, while writing the file
named 'C:\WINDOWS\BOOTLOG.TXT'.  When your computer freezes,
reboot, and repeat the above, but don't enter the 'WIN /B' command.
Instead, enter 'EDIT \WINDOWS\BOOTLOG.TXT', and look for
messages saying "failed".

I have got the same problem, and I'can resolved them in two step
1) In DOS mode, (windows not load) goto setup.exe (c:\windows\setup.exe) and select video = VGA (standard)
2) In Dos type C:\Win /n  (ejecutar a windows sin conexión a red)
If you like, you send me the autoexec.bat, config.sys,win.ini and system.ini by e-mail (renato@satlink.com)
Sorry I'cant speak English very well, I'm speak spanish.
