Windows 7: Installed Windows 7 and now hard drive wont boot....

Installed Windows 7 and now hard drive wont boot....

Asus cm5570-ap006 originally running vista premium and owner wanted an upgrade to seven. Bought a new hard drive b/c old one died. Mobo had trouble finding new drive but, after setting bios back to default(F5) it installed and finally got working.
Owner gets pc and starts getting blue screening and saying theres an f1 drive error and wont wake up after suspending without reboot.
So I get it running fine by removing avg(which is causing blue screen for some reason) and the it is now waking up after auto hibernation. But if you put into hibernation manually it wont wake. I update windows and it goes back to not recognising hard drive.
Flash bios remove cmos baterry reset bios to default and set hard drive to ahcpi and it reinstalls fine update windows and it stops working. Use restore point to get it back and running and this time dont update windows and its running ok again. Shut it down for the night and the next day go to boot it up and there is no bootable media and now I am trying to reinstall Windows 7 and after it does it gets a no bootable media error even though it is installed and passes all the startup tests when using the disk to do a repair....help any suggestions welcome.... Thanks

The motherboard may be at fault. Have you tried hooking up the hard drive to another system to see if you can acess the data. There may be a chance that the hard drive is failing. Be sure to back up the owner's data.

Owner lost all data with original drive that died. I dont have another desktop right now to hook it up but I can use a usb sata usb adapter to try and boot from usb I guess. The drive is a brand new Seagate 1 TB.
