Windows 7: Unable to install windows to Hitachi hard drive

Unable to install windows to Hitachi hard drive

Hi all. Looking for a bit of advice. Originally got message - Disk read error occurred press ctl alt del to restart. Then tried plugging this drive using a USB connector into my desktop PC to see if I could run some chkdsk. Then my desktop PC displayed messages telling me my firewall and virus software had been turned off and the computer crashed. ROOTKIT? So I was left with 2 drives not working. I re installed windows on desktop but using ISO on flash drive BUT can't on the 500GB Hitachi HTS545050B9SA00 for some reason. Windows setup loaded and Deleted old partitions and formatted. When I tried to install, it froze. It now just boots up with a windows loading screen and I'm also unable to boot from flash drive as it freezes. Any suggestions anyone? This is on a Sony Vaio VPCEB4E4E

For starting point,
Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
