installation are available , and restart Error code:0x80070002".

Did you CLEAN your harddisk (not CLEAN ALL)?
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
You cannot use the clean or clean all diskpart commands on a boot disk (ex: disk Windows 7 is installed on) unless you do it from a command prompt at boot.

Does BIOS list the disk? It looks like the disk died! Very strange... just in the middle of install

Do you get this error in the "expanding files" stage? If so at which percentage?
