Make sure HD shows up in BIOS Setup. Test it now by booting into Dell Diagnostics by tapping F12 key at boot.

Where did you get the Windows 7 installer? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Is this a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7? Everything you need is in the blue link.

If it fails, wipe the HD after backing up all data and making your Recovery Disks if you want them.
