You can work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Recovery from partition or disks or Clean Reinstalling.

The error often means the installer is bad. Download another ISO and burn to DVD or write to flash stick following Steps 1 and 2 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Will the HD drive show in BIOS?
If YES
Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
