Windows installation MBR problem

I have some little problem but want to get rid of it too.
The problem is that i have a bootable USB for windows 7 installation.. Now whenever i install the windows everything goes fine and after the installation has completed after several reboots, i am stuck at the black screen after BIOS which i got to know is the MBR problem..I have got to know how to fix it through command prompt but doing it everytime i install windows is a little annoying..
Is there any problem in the boot drive or something else solution for it?

Where did you get Win7? How is it activated?

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, using SNipping Tool in Start Menu.

You can try running a few passes of Startup Repair to see if it fixes your boot. We use automated repairs in Win7 which are much more comprehensive that the old XP boot commands.

Try wiping the HD of all boot code before install using Diskpart Clean Command.

Reset BIOS to defaults. While in BIOS setup set SATA controller to AHCI mode to try install.
