    Is this an additional drive, or a replacement for what was already installed? If an addidional drive, ensure that one is set to master and the other slave or both cable select. Main thing is two devices on the same cable must not be set the same. For a single drive, it won't matter so much what it is set to, but should be master or cable select and plugged into the end of the cable. If rebooting persists, got to Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced. Startup & Recovery. In Settings, untick Automatically Restart. Now instead of rebooting it should give you a blue stop screen. What message is displayed?
