installation other windows

HP Recommended

I bought a brand new hp dm4 beats edition. I created the recovery dvds and tried to install windows 7 ultimate and windows 8 CP. The result was the same for either one. Error. with windows 7 ultimate after the pc reboot appears a blue screen and it doesn't go any farther with the installation and the only thing to do is restart it. with windows 8 the error is different. it freezes and a blue screen with a sad smile pops up. and the error referres to "winload.exe" that might be curropt or missing. I attempted the installation many times with no results. I don't know what to do, it is like my pc doesn't give me the freedom to personalize it the way I want. I hope somebody gives me advice on what to do before I return it back. thanks

to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate: no installation is needed, simply try the Windows anytime upgrade-- type in the new product key
