it maybe that your drive is formated in 16 or 32 bit and maybe win 7 is having

It won't install to a FAT partition so that's not it.

Post back with more info on how it is cabled and what type of drive.
It may have dropped into PIO mode. This happens with consecutive read/write errors but can be corrected.
