What does the rest of that error message say? You got a VSD Error.

Use a normal standard usb stick!!

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install:

Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here. I would use a fresh ISO written with tool in Step 2 as yours is in question; run Diskpart Clean All on the stick first before doing this.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.

the first number is my HDD drive-HDD0 I understood it now... As you said- "Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit." Tell me please how to set this by numbers you see on my pic. I'm a complete newbie

If that ATAPI CDROM device is also a DVD drive, then use the down arrow to highlight it, click enter. Then follow the Help shown to move the device up to first position, often using the + key but different for some models. It will always show this nearby or by choosing the Help menu.

It doesn't look like you have UEFI but look over all the settings in the BIOS to see if you see any for UEFI, Legacy BIOS or CSM (Compatibiility Support Module).
