After fresh reinstall I get an error which says to run CHKDSK on the computer and the error code is 0x0000007B. I didn't even manage to boot it once. I managed to run checkdisk from vista installation cd (there were some repair options) but it didn't show any errors.

Is the hard drive crashed? I thought that maybe some drivers are missing but I think that it wouldn't let me install OS on it.

Of course I tried to reinstall the system.

Thanks in advance!

Its not clear if you can you boot into Safe Mode? You tried to reinstall the operating system? What happened when you did that? – Ramhound May 11 '13 at 23:51
0x0000007B often occurs when you switch the SATA mode from IDE to AHCI. Have you done this? – magicandre1981 May 12 '13 at 5:30

I have solved the problem but unfortunately couldn't submit my answer earlier.

I had to switch from AHCI to IDE as someone mentioned in comment - previously there was Vista installed but probably with some drivers and thats why it worked fine. After change to IDE i had to reinstall system once again.
