You can also check if your bios lets you change the SATA config from AHCI to IDE/ATA. If it does, change it, press F10 to save and exit, then try installing win7.

Also you should deep clean your HD to get the cleanest possible slate for reinstall, in case you were infected or have a hidden partition interfering with reinstall:

Boot Windows 7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, open a Command Line, type:
SELECT DISK # (for Windows 7 disk)
clean all (applies zeros, deepest clean, takes about an hour per 320gb)
create partition primary
select partition 1
assign letter=c:

Now try booted Custom install to partition you have just created, with all other HD's and USB devices unplugged.
