Exclamation Windows seven startup problems

Got the machine built today (I-5 3570k, msi bigbang m-power, gtx 670, corsair vengeance 1866 2x8) and getting ready to start up into windows 7 home premium when I can't get past the windows icon when it first starts up (the part with the yellow and red stars) drive is a 2009 WD digital caviar blue.

Other then that have basically no idea whats going on

WIN 7 loves brand spanking new drives.
Have only one ssd/HDD atached to the board.
A brand new one or vary well wiped one with no partitions on it.

With a MSI board and some fancy RAM timing , you always install the OS with only 1 stick of RAM.
