Windows 7: Brand new PC won't install Win7 :(

Brand new PC won't install Win7 :(

Hey guys

My new PC arrived today and I still didn't manage to get Windows 7 running on it..
Here are some basic information so you know what I got

16GB DDR3 RAM
2TB SATA Memory
Intel i7-4770
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 1,5 GB

Anyway, I downloaded Windows 7 Professional 64bit + SP1 from Chip and burned it with ImgBurn on a 8gb DVD+R DL,
because my PC came with no OS (only Free DOS).
I put in the DVD and I'm also able to start the installation until the first reboot, after my PC has rebooted I get the Error Message:
"Disk error
Press any key to restart"
If I do so it loads for a second and then give me another error message:
"Reboot and Select proper Boot Device,
or Insert Boot Media in selected device and press a key"

I can do what I want at this point, the only options I got is to watch the error messages or install again..
I downloaded 2 different versions of Windows 7 and burned 4 DVD's - No achievment..
I'm really starting to get mad and upset at the same time, I spent a whole day on my brand new Computer and couldn't even get windows on it.

I really hope you guys can help me, I searched through the net and everywhere, nobody seems to have exactly my problem, I just can't find any help..

Thanks in advance!

Win 7 Ult 64-bit
 
 

Download a Partition wizard ISO file ( it's free and You can find it in the net ) , burn it on a disc and boot it on the PC. With it's help format your HD. Try to boot again your windows7 disc. You'd better create about a 200Gb partition for Your C drive with the OS .The rest of space You'll format later through the disc management. Maybe the mistake is if You try to install the OS on the whole HD space - I've heard someone with the same problem.

Boot from Windows 7 install DVD. Press shift+f10 as explained here Command Prompt at Startup then do:

Code:
diskpart
list disk
You only see one disk? What is the size?
exit
Was FREEDOS on disk and did that boot successfully?

FREEDOS is installed in the computer (no disc) and I was able to boot it successfully yeah, but I think it doesn't work anymore :x

You can delete/create partitions with the Windows 7 install DVD. Partition Wizard isn't needed for the the things you want

So harddisk is (was working). It is in the boot sequence. You're having a smaal problem (most likely... you have 1 large partition was FREEDOS which is a FAT32 partition!). Windows 7 needs NTFS

Harddrive 1 | No Medium | 0b | 0b |

When I'm installing Win 7 I got 2 Partitions to pick, the first one is FREEDOS with 3.9GB size and 3.9GB size left, typ System.
And the Second I can pick is Partition 2 with 1854GB size 1846GB left and Typ primary

I can only install windows 7 on partition 2, because partition 1 isn't NTFS formated, an information message tells me that.

I don't know what to do now :x

So what should I do now ? :/

And the Second I can pick is Partition 2 with 1854GB size 1846GB left and Typ primary
Any idea what harddrive 1 is? Anyway drive 0 is the 2TB drive.

Code:
diskpart
select  disk  0
clean
Reboot again form install DVD and try to install. Post results.

Problem was: FREEDOS was "system", so marked active ... so boot partition where bootmgr comes. Not allowed on FAT32 partition... must be NTFS
