Questions, questions? How much ram memory do you have in your computer? How much hard drive space is available? Are you trying to do a clean install with nothing else on the drive? When it says it can't load explorer, that means it can't put it into ram. If you can see the POST (power on self test) screen it might tell you these things. You may have to press del, F1, F2 tab or esc to see the POST screen, depending on the type of computer. It may tell you during boot up.
