Question about Computers & Internet
Hello and welcome to fixya.
If I was in your position, I would try disabling the AHCI mode of the Hard Disk Drive from the BIOS. That option is can be found according to the type of BIOS you have.
Of course the other-way around stands as well. This means that if you notice that the AHCI option of the Hard Disk Drive is disabled or not on, please try and enable it and try the Windows7 installation again.
This problem is mostly noticed in Windows 7 (64-bit) here but as I mentioned before, it might not be exactly the same. Try disabling/enabling that specific option I've told you and see what happens.
Also: You didn't mention intially if you have more than one Hard Disks or if you are running RAID. That might also cause some issues or needs specific configuration.
Let me know how that went.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
