Windows 7: New Hard Drive Installed Trying To Install Win 7

Sounds like you've still got a bad installer. Did you boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here? Do that now and report back responses to our help steps so we know you are following them and not just flailing about.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. Next if an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Boot installer, at first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. We are creating the partition here to mark it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

I gave you the steps above to do that.

If you're getting Bootmgr is missing then the HD is attempting to boot, not the DVD drive or Flash stick.

Follow these steps How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube

Where did you get the Win7 ISO and how is it burned to disk or written to flash stick?

Is the fan spinning inside?

Are you getting anything on the screen at all?

Look at the LED activity lights for CPU and HD. Anything at all?

Unplug the power adapter, remove the battery, press the Power button and hold it down for about 10 seconds, then plug back in the power adapter to see if it will start. If not plug back in the battery.
