I assume you have a DVD of Win 7. When you start the installation how far do you get and what is shown on the screen when the error pops up?

Set your SATA controller to AHCI or IDE in BIOS setup.

Post back the exact wording of the error.

there are a whole bunch of updated drivers and three BIOS updates for that mainboard. you probably need to load the SATAIII driver during windows installation. you can find it on this page:

MSI Global – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

and you might want to try disabling RAID in the BIOS if you are only using one hard drive.
