Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

When you are doing the clean, don't do an align.

Where did you get your installation media? Did it come with your computer or did you download an ISO and burn the disc yourself?

Download the latest official ISO with SP1 from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to burn to DVD or write to flash stick with tool provided. This will rule out the installer since it is a possible cause.

OK you can check that off the list.

Now why can the BIOS not be reset to defaults? You need to do that then check SATA controller setting and remove EFI boot from Boot order.

Then boot the confirmed installer to Custom install to partition you made.
