I cleaned it out again, I bought a new tube of thermal compound cleaned out the old one and replace with fresh compound.
Still the same issue. I have been trying for two weeks now and always the same result, I don't know what to do next.

Have you confirmed this is a CPU issue? Are you overheating in the BIOS? It could be a hard disk compatibility issue, RAM, or even video graphics (unlikely... this will appear when the install finishes).

Try memtest86 upon resolving the CPU issues. Run this program it has the potential to save you hours of agony.

I will try the memtest86.

i will also try removing the pci cards to see what is going happen.

I've seen a few people had good ram but had to install Windows with just one stick of ram. After the install they added the rest back and it was OK.

Is this install from an actual MS disk or a downloaded ISO? If you burn the ISO faster than 4X it can cause problems.

Is this a commercial built PC like from Dell? Could it need some third party driver? I can't think of much else.

There is a NO BOOT troubleshooting page from Intel for this board and a possible BIOS update for this motherboard, which is almost unheard of for Intel releasing that type of update. Usually that is left for manufacturers: Support for the Intel® Desktop Board D915GEV

Seeing this is a Pentium 4 system, thus much older, you may be encountering some compatibility problem.

You'll want to read this: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/18246/eng/Windows%207%20Compatibility%20for%20Intel%20Desktop%20Boards.pdf

You may be out of luck, my friend. It may simply be a matter of WDDM support vs. XDDM. Either way, they stopped support on the board leaving no drivers for Windows 7 at all.
