Next try writing the latest official installer ISO with SP1 to a flash stick with tool provided here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
Unplug the DVD drive. If it fails burn the same ISO to DVD using tool. This will rule out the installer.
Any chance you have an EFI BIOS? Check in BIOS boot order if there is an EFI boot disk listed and remove it.
Try installing with SATA controller in IDE mode.
I found them on that Digitaliife site from the same guide you linked me to (Explained in the OP) and then I burned 5 disks with imageburn at 4X speed and verified each one with them all coming up with no error's found when finished burning.
I let that program write the windows 7 image onto a USB stick then tried to install that way and got the error again, then I unplugged the DVD drive and got the same error again. Can't test with DVD drive at the moment cause it's being dumb.
For the sake Argument of lets just assume that running it through the DVD drive had the same error.
I checked the Boot order and the only things listed were the HD and the DVD Rom (Well before).
And when I try and select different mode for the SATA Controller it only lists AHCI And Raid as my choices, no IDE.
Thanks For helping. -Edit- (That sounds Sarcastic, so just Clarify it's Sincere.)
