There is a slim clue here that hardware failed.

The lockup with changed color often tells me the GPU failed. I can't tell what PC this is or its parts so remove the video card and try it without if your board has onboard video or try another video card.

Be sure you are starting the WIndows install to a blank, no partition, not formatted HDD to avoid tripping up the Windows installer.

bro, when I delete all partition on windows install and create other one, it creates 1 other 100mb file and secund 100 mb is free, but I can't even exstand, it's little bit different then it was before. btw I try to change my processor and trying now to install with new processor now, if still error, I will try with other video card

I hope you see now

Why sharing full details matters. For example if this was a certain line of motherboards I'd have you research BAD CAPS, and if this was a Nvidia 8400 I'd respond with asking you to read

I know you want to keep your privacy so I only ask for details about what we are working on.

Skype and "fb"? I use google to find those today.

And what is "exstand"? This makes it hard to guess what you are asking.

As to partitions, a blank HDD is best for a fresh Windows install. Otherwise you can trip up Windows own installer.

One parting idea. Make sure the HDD is on the lowest number SATA port.
Note: Edited for typo.

R.proffit , I have changed video card, first time when I try to install windows, it's seems like the computer can't read video card, becouse its about 4 mb pixels on the screen, I meant its like that u don't even have video card, what may cause this problam? may thats happens cuz that video card was working for other computer and it hasnt worked for miney b4?

What is "cuz"? Cousin?

Please avoid slang when we have to discuss technical issues. Same goes for before vs. b4. This is not a cell phone so no need for that.

All the above sounds like a hardware failure but there is one thing to try again. Make sure the HDD is BLANK. Try a HDD wipe from a bootable CD like DBAN. READ WARNINGS about DBAN before use. It will wipe attached drives clean.
