Since you need a Win 7 install disk to do a clean install...inserting that after changing the BIOS boot option...should enable a clean install of Win 7.

 

If you can't get into BIOS to change the boot options...I suggest using the either motherboard jumper to short the CMOS battery or removing the battery for a few minutes and then reinserting...this should reset the CMOS settings and break the loop, IMO.

Of course...if your hard drive IS the problem, all of your efforts to avoid replacing the current drive...will be in vain.
