Can't start windows 7

I downloaded W7-64bit from microsoft. I burned to a disc and booted to it. It loads all the files fine, but when it goes to start windows it shows a red dot then gives a blue screen saying something I can't remember at the moment. (I'll find out later)
I've tried the 32 bit version, it does the same. I installed from XP. And it does the same thing. I'm thinking it might be a hardware issue, but don't have a clue what it could be.

Here is my system in hopes that somebody might see an obvious problem.
