Make your Recovery Disks if you haven't already, wipe the HD from the booted Win7 DVD, then clean reinstall. If you have an Upgrade version, you'll have to do one of the workarounds in the Clean Install tutorial to clean install without Vista on the HD:

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Before installing make sure you have the latest BIOS version for your computer or mobo model, and set the SATA controller to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.
