Sure you can but you better make a partition to put it on first. Use the Partition Wizard boot cd to make a partition.

Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to manage partition directly with partition manager bootable CD.

Why don`t you try fixing windows 7 first.

Where did you get the Win7 disk?

Start over and this time delete all partitions during install as shown in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7.

If that fails, reboot the Win7 disk, at first screen press Shift + F10 to open a command line, then run Diskpart Clean Command. Close Command box, start Install.
