    I can't start up my MacBook as long as the installation does not complete.

    If its a fresh install, just start over, erase the drive and install again. If not and there are things on the drive I can describe a way to use single user or terminal from recovery to extract all information first then wipe and reinstall.

    I had erase my drive and start over the installation for so many times but it still stuck. I made a partition and install windows 7 and it works. This means that my hardware don't have problem. I tried 2 snow leopard installer and it still not working...

    How were you managing to install Windows 7 before anything else? If the drive is truly wiped clean and properly partitioned and formatted, I would imagine the installer is the problem. Where did you get the installer or did you make it yourself?

    First, I tried the snow leopard install DVD that comes with my Mac for a few times.

    Then, I borrowed a bootable snow leopard USB from my friend and try it for a few times but doesn't work. The USB is made by my friend.

    I install windows 7 to test whether my hardware are working or not. For example, hard drive, motherboard etc
