Win7 Ultimate 32 bit install freezes on first wizard screen

I've recently built my first gaming PC and am having trouble installing windows 7. Whenever I try to boot from the cd, it loads the win7 files, then freezes on the first screen of the install wizard
Language input screen. (Superfluous image removed. Elmer. Tier 2 Moderator)
Unlike this image however, I have no cursor and there seems to be no response to keyboard input. This is in contrast to when I open the BIOS menu and both mouse and keyboard work.

If anyone knows what is going on, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks
