If you going to do a reinstall:

Move your hard drive that Windows 7 will be installed on to SATA port 1.

Go HDD Boot Priority in the bios, press enter and make sure the first drive is the one in SATA port 1.

Follow these two tutorials for RE-installation of Windows 7.
Prepare a Drive for- Clean Install

This will take a while, but its worth it.
