Oh, you must mean a blinking cursor, that means the laptop can't find something to boot from, chances are the Windows boot media you made is not done correctly and is not bootable.

There is much information on the internet about reinstalling windows. The information you gave is not enough to provide any advice. There are many ways for thing to go wrong if you are installing from scratch. If the OS ran enough to do a reinstall from Windows, that usually works well.

What exactly do you mean by blinking? Screen is flashing, some status light is flashing? Need full details. By "creating windows" do you mean after it ran the installation?
