Where did you get Win7?

Did you burn it to DVD yourself? If so, burn another at 4x speed using ImgBurn.

Or try install from USB flash stick: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

Check also that you have the latest BIOS version update, and set the SATA controller in BIOS setup to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.

None of the above worked for me, what I did was re-install Vista, formatted,
then ran the update from there after needing SP1 from the compatibility report and all is good now
