Windows 7 Can't start windows 7

I am have problems starting up windows 7. It gets to the point where it says starting windows, and has a red dot. (Looks like it's starting a loading bar maybe) Then it gives a MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION error. I started with 64bit, then tried 32bit. I even tried installing it within XP (which copied the files over without error, but when it tried to boot to 7 it gave the same error). Does anybody have any clue why it would give me that error?
