Enter BIOS setup by tapping key given on first Boot Screen, the same one you used to clear the CMOS.
Look for where SATA drives are listed, then for controller setting. It may not be new enough to offer an AHCI setting.
You need to run repair scan on HD. I will upload the GWScan HD diag/repair scan file for you to run: find ISO iamge file unzipped to C:cabs, click on it to burn to CD with Windows burner. Then boot it to run full HD scan. If it fails try another scan from list: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287
If you would have read further in the Disk Check tutorial it shows you how to run chkdsk /f from the Install DVD Command Line: boot DVD, press Shift F10 at first screen or enter Repair console to open Command Line, type chkdsk /f Do you have all other HD's and USB devices unplugged during install?
The driver which is hanging the install appears to be an HP print driver.
When I don't have any more time to troubleshoot problem installs, I often move the HD to another machine to do install, then when returning HD to problem machine it will often start up, swap out all drivers while requesting several restarts. If it starts it will run fine with no probs. If not, try booting into Safe Mode to change out chipset and display driver first. Run Startup Repair from booted DVD. Paragon Adaptive Restore will remove all the drivers from HD if they block startup, while Acronis 10+ imaging (of any Windows 7 install) will allow you to reimage to any new hardware.
