What are you using to install windows ? A retail dvd ? Did you make the disc yourself ?

The problem is almost always a bad installer.

Where did you get the ISO and how is it burned to DVD? How is it being activated?

Are you using the Producct Key on a laptop's COA sticker to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7? If so follow the steps from the top to get a perfect reinstall.

Follow the steps in the tutorial to get a perfect reinstall.

Download the latest official ISO for your licensed version and burn to DVD using the tool given. The installer you have is bad and should not be used.

Read the Special Notes to HP Owners at end to understand your options for the HP Recovery and Tools Partitions. I would delete them all during install.
