I have a Acer Aspire M3900 PC that got a virus ... so I tried to repair the startup and it failed so next using the recovery partition I tried to restore to factory condition .. that also fails on reboot...  Next I tried to fresh install with a new MS windows 7 dvd ... that also fails on reboot.... I tried switching Ram models & also the HD ... still failing .... so I just tried tro install win xp pro and it installed just fine.... Any ideas

Did you get any errors? if so what are they?

Before you re-installed did you format the whole Drive?
Did you delete and recreate any of the partitions?

Make sure when your installing Win 7 onto the System Drive, not the Recovery Drive.
