Unexpected error whilst Installing windows 7 from disk

Hi everyone, I had encountered problems with my laptop and wanted to start a fresh so I tried to install windows seven again and got all the way through the installation up until the completing installation phase then after about fourty minutesi received an error of what I beleive said windows has encountered a problem restart the computer and restart the installation and when i tried to boot I got an error after the setup is starting services screen that says the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error windows installation cannot proceed, and when I restart I get stuck in this loop, I have my bios set to boot from cd drive but if I do not press any buttons it shows four different windows 7 listed, I am completely stuck in what to do, i have a dell Inspiron N5030. Im a bit of a computer noob so no jargon please, sorry if I have put this thread in the wrong part of the forum.Pretty much I'd like to know how to get rid of the 4 windows 7s and Make a fresh from my windows disk
Sorry about the repost but I realised the title was not correct within the rules and I'm not sure how to delete the previous post

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

Then follow these steps exactly, post back the step where it fails along with verbatim error message: Clean Install Windows 7

How interesting, the same problem I had yesterday Instaling Windows7 failed during installation. go into bios and change AHCI mode to IDE and see if that works for you.
