Your problem is probably related to hardware. I don't suppose you wrote down the error messages in the BSOD?

The blue screen was a clue as to what the problem is/was. Apparently it's a hardware problem & it's preventing you from reinstalling Windows. Check the temp reading in the BIOS to make sure the CPU isn't overheating. If it's not, try testing the RAM with memtest86.
