If it's been giving you this problem across 3 different versions of windows. I would actually wonder if you odn't have a hardware issue of some sort.
Here's something you can let run overnight that may actually be productive.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Also it never hurts to prep the hard drive properly.

it can be a tad time consuming, but it will also remove a lot of possible causes from the equation.

|As suggested wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command accessing DISKPART At PC Startup

Next try entering Device Manager during install to disable any driver which is in error, likely the Display driver, so that installation will complete: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation.

Where did you get Windows 7? Did you burn the disk yourself. Try downloading the latest official Installer ISO to burn to DVD or write to flash stick from Steps 1/2 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
