Set HD first to boot in BIOS setup.

Trigger installer using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Choose Custom install, then at Drive Selection screen delete all partitions, create and format new as you wish or just click Next to let installer do it for you: Clean Install Windows 7

When computer reboots during install if prompted do NOT press any key to boot installer again.

Read over these steps first to understand the best practices for installing Win7.

Remove the DVD or unplug the installer flash stick during reboot. Once install recommences plug it in if prompted.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD or write the flash stick yourself? Try again using steps 1 and 2 here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
