If this happens again try entering Device Manager during the final phase of install to Disable any Devices whose drivers are erroring with an ! mark, likely the Display driver. This may allow it to complete install so you can Update driver from desktop.
Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

I would also use the latest official Installer with SP1 from Step 1 in tutorial, burned using tool in Step 2. Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If this fails to do it then test the RAM - Test with Memtest86+ CD for 5-6 passes or overnight, then test the HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan
followed by Disk Check from the installer's Command Line accessed by pressing Shift + F10 at first screen when booting DVD.

Fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of post to go further than that.

Hi,

Are you able to provide your system specifications using this tool:

System Info - See Your System Specs

It will help us work out what hardware you have, and where to locate the appropriate drivers.

Regards,
Golden

Did you follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
which in Steps 9 and 10 is quite clear about how drivers are handled in Win7?

You were to download and unzip to CD or flash stick your network adapter from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC or network adapter in case it was not in the Win7 installer, so that you can install it to get online to do all of the Important and Optional Windows Updates.

If you weren't clear about that step you should have asked ahead and not ignored it then ask back later as though you had not been clearly instructed on this from the start.

Tell us the make and Model PC, or if it's home built tell us the make and model of the network adapter you use to connect to internet. It may be listed in Device Manager, or you may have to trace it using Hardware Identification
