Setup failed again. Got to the fifth point "completing installation" just like before but install failed " windows couldn't be configured to run on your hardware".

I've started a HD check from system diagnostics in the boot menu. Will take 3 hours to complete

Which diagnostics are these? There should be no built in System Diagnostics any longer if you wiped the HD.

Are you referring to Disk Check run from the Win7 DVD's System Recovery Options Command Line? This will check the file system on the HD and attempt to repair errors if you run it with the -f switch. But those should have been quarantined during formatting.

More important is to diagnose the HD's condition using the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, which can be determined by looking on the HD or looking at its listing in BIOS setup (if necessary googling the model or serial). WD must be slaved to another PC to run from an OS. If no bootable DOS ISO is available for your model then use Seatools from Seagate which will diagnose but not be able to repair another brand.

Pressed esc key during boot. Brought up 6 options such as : boot options,system info,systen diag, etc. Selected the system diag option bought up the HP system diag tools, and selected HD diag and extensive check from the sub menu. Didn't. Choose it from the DVD

It couldn't run HP diagnostics because the drive is wiped. So you are running it from an HP utilities disk, or a HD maker's diagnostics CD I've now linked for you twice?

Everytime I start my laptop it says on the bottom left, click esc forboot options. I do that startup is paused and a new menu appears aking me to slect a option as stated in my previous post. The last optionm it press esc to continue startup. If I continue win 7 loads and say that install failed and please reinstall from DVD

Enter BIOS setup to look again for SATA controller setting to change it to AHCI first to try install again, then IDE mode. It should be under the storage area. If in doubt post back camera snaps of all settings on each tab.

You were also given options earlier about UEFI BIOS. Did you look for Legacy Mode or Compatibility Support Module (CSM) to enable them in order to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7? If not and you have UEFI BIOS you'll need these special steps to install to UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums . So look for UEFI choices in BIOS as well.

Where did you get the Win7 installer? Use the latest official ISO burned to DVD with tool in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Set HDD to boot first in BIOS setup, wipe it clean again to try install one more time.

If DVD install fails, try flash stick install.
