Hello everyone!

So I made a custom PC about a month ago and I did not have a Product Key for Windows 7 for 30 days. My background then went black and said "This copy of windows is not genuine". I then tried to download a windows 7 installation and once I did found one, after the installation was finished, I had to restart my PC in order for the program to take effect. 

Then, those weird text were written on the screen and it appears everytime I start my PC.

I tried spamming F8, F12, F9 and F11 but nothing happens expect the ASRock Monitor options which are:

F2 or DEL to run UEFI setup
F6 for instant flash
F11 to boot menu
Tab to switch screen

I am stuck and can't seem to do anything or find something helpful on the internet.

Here are my PC Specs:

You have tried to install a Dell Restore program...to a non-OEM system.  Such programs are designed to work properly only on the specific model system for which the manufacturer had devised.  That would be an illegal install and should not work properly.
