Problems installing in a clean HD

Hey guys!
I got last Win7 canditate (32bit) and I'm trying to install it in a 500GB hard drive i got yesterday.
I'm having several problems doing it:
1) I got the iso; burned it and rebooting my computer to install it from bios. It's all fine but when installing the computer get frozen in the "expanding archives" step (0%)
2) I tried doping a pendrive bootable and installing it from bios, but it frozen too earlier.
3) I tried installing it from XP but frozen "expanding archives" (33%).
4) I installed it in VirtualBox and it work, but too slow.

Do you guys known a way to perform a clean install of it?
Thanks in advance!

Have you tried installing Win 7 with all onboard devices disabled? Are you running raid? Do you have any add on devices? If so try removing them. Are you running the latest bios?
