You're sure the install DVD is not insert on first reboot? Anyway... reboot without DVD or USB inserted.
Are you very sure it's booting from HDD?

You didn't say where you got the copy of Windows 7 from, but go to this site and burn a DVD of it. Windows 7 Direct Download Links Try the install again and see if it makes any difference. You will have to go half way down the page until you get to the English version. You will need to choose between the 32 and 64 bit versions. Burn the DVD at no faster than a 4X speed. Let us know how it goes.

It has been several years since I installed Win 7, but it seems there are a couple of reboots and the install disk should be left in the drive. Are you taking the install disk out of the drive at any time?

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.

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.
