Windows 7: Trouble reinstalling windows onto another hard drive.

Trouble reinstalling windows onto another hard drive.

To understand my problem, you need to know a little about the history of my PC.
i bought my PC last September and about a month later, everything failed for no particular reason, and my hard drives were wiped clean. Originally, my windows, (windows 7 64 bit), was installed on a hard drive with over 1 TB worth of space. when the problem was fixed, my windows was installed onto my SSD, which only has 20GB worth of space. This means that space was incredibly limited, meaning that i could barely do anything that i wanted to.

After trying to reinstall windows onto my 1TB hard drive, it failed at the last possible minute, saying something like, windows cannot configure itself to run on your system. Which bring me here. If anyone has had this problem, or knows a solution to the problem, i would be very grateful.
And if it helps, here is the link to my PC, detailing the Specs that my PC has - The iReign
Thanks in advance.
