Sounds to me as if the media is corrupt,
OR more likely you have another external drive connected, remove it.
Install W7 on your primary DRIVE (SSD?), UNPLUG anything else apart from mouse/keyboard.

SSD is 500GB

I attempted all of the recommended steps from Megahertz07, I have only been running the drive in port 0 with nothing else connected as I encountered issues like that in past builds. Unfortunately after the recommended changes to bios still getting the same error during the expanding windows files portion of the install. Verified nothing but the USB, Mouse, and keyboard are plugged in. Really thinking if it is finally time for me to upgrade to W10.

Any other suggestions to get this working on this SSD would be much appreciated, love all the assistance I'm getting in here so far.

Have you downloaded a fresh iso file and created a new installer yet ?

If you have a dvd drive, that is the easiest method you can try.

Yes, I tried with the dvd and I have tried a fresh iso file multiple times all with the same results.

When you begin the installation, does it ask for a driver?
Is your SSD a M.2 drive?

Do to the fact that tens of millions of computers run Windows 7 on ssd's makes me think that either the media or methods or maybe both is the problem.

I'm not sure what you mean about it being M.2 and no it does not ask for drivers and I can see thr drive no issue. It even creates all 3 of the partitions correctlly when instillstion begins. LazyBear I currently have W7 running on my previous ssd. The issue is thr fact that I have used the media in question to clean install before. Not to mention the boot usb was created following the exact steps recommended here. Lastly the new ssd in question has zero issues when being used for just typical storage, it only starts having issues when I attempt install of windows.
My methods have been to follow the exact steps recommended here and in the guides on these forums. Could it still be a bad ssd even though it works fine when not trying to have W7 installed as boot drive?

Did you boot your installation on UEFI mode, deleted all partitions, created a new one (Win will create 3 partitions) and proceeded.?
As you said that the SSD was used for data, it could have been formatted in MBR and not in UEFI - GPT mode.

It's also important that on BIOS:
- SATA=AHCI (or RAID if you intend to use RAID)
- OS=Other
- Storage Boot and PCI device to UEFI only
- XHCI Hand off to disabled

Yes, I saw you posted those suggestions earlier and was met with the same error. I made sure to delete all partitions and create new during the install process. All settings were copied with what you suggested also.
