Try not pointing to the driver as Windows 7 may have its own driver - this is not XP.

Does the HD show up at install?

Are you in a RAID config? Try with one HD with SATA controller set to AHCI.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Reset the BIOS to defaults.

Try wiping the HD: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Wipe the HD: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

I would also test the HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, which should also have a wipe function on it's Menu to use after testing.

Best to test the RAM to clear it, too: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If install continues to fail, remove all but 2gb RAM to try install, then swap RAM sticks.
