Have you tried booting into Recovery Mode from the Windows DVD?

You could try this command once in recovery mode rename c:\windows\system32\drivers\classpnp.sys classpnp.old

It should allow you at least into safemode.

it sounds as if the install dvd is not recognizing the os installed.

have you performed hardware diagnostics?  what hardware platform are you on?

Once you select the language you want to install the next screen should have a 'Repair your computer' option in the bottom left corner. From there you should be able to select your installation and go into a command prompt
