Can you explain history of PC.
Is it second hand?
Are u putting extras in the PC that were not in there(working) before?
ie are you adding the Seagate 750Gb to the original spec or was it working in there with XP/Vista?

Can your pc support over 500Gb hard drives(without a bios update from Dell?) - just a thought.

How is your PC 'boot' set up in bios?
name each line like >
CD/DVD boot1
Scsi boot2
hdd0 boot3
?? boot4

Is 'SATA' turned on in Bios > SCSI/SATA line setting?

PC is first-hand and taken care of well. The Seagate drives were functioning properly when running Vista 32bit. The BIOS doesn't give me an option for SATA, I think it's always enabled by default.

I've downloaded the 32bit version Win7 Pro and this installed without a hitch... so the hardware is fine and my computer is up and running again. Unfortunately, I can't see ANY way after this ordeal that I can successfully install 64 bit drivers so I can run the 64 bit Windows 7 (which was my intention).
Thanks for the help everyone, I will still be working on getting X64 so if I find a way I'll post it in here in case a Google searcher stumbles upon this thread.

When creating a bootable USB device, I am getting an error about bootsect
To make the USB device bootable, you need to run a tool named bootsect.exe. In some cases, this tool needs to be downloaded from your Microsoft Store account. This may happen if you're trying to create a 64-bit bootable USB device from a 32-bit version of Windows. To download bootsect:
  1. Login to your Microsoft Store account to view your purchase history
  2. Look for your Windows 7 purchase
  3. Next to Windows 7, there is an "Additional download options" dropdown
  4. In the dropdown, select the "32-bit ISO" option
  5. Right-click the link and save the bootsect.exe file to the location where you installed the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Apps\Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool)
  6. Once the file has been saved, go back to the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool to create your bootable USB device
