I finaly got this fixed!

follow these instructions

boot into your Windows 7 install dvd/usb

select repair your computer, it will fail, then select the command prompt after a few windows.

type into command prompt (NO QUOTES)

"diskpart" (enter)
"list disk" (enter)

find your HDD (in my case disk 0)

"select disk 0" (enter)
"clean" (enter)
"exit" (enter)

This should clean your MBR if I am not mistaken and fix this error for everyone.

type into command prompt

"setup.exe" (enter)

This helped me a lot so therefore I give a BIG THANK YOU!

Cleaning the disk does solve about half of installation problems if the installer is burned or written correctly.

Hi, Nikeem.!

Thanks for asking to the w7's forum!

I fixed this problem following these steps:

.- Run the setup installation of Windows 7
.- Run COMMAND PROMP by pressing SHIFT + F10
.- Type DISKPART
.- Type "select disk 0" (without the quotations) and press ENTER
.- Type "LIST PARTITION" (without the quotations) and press ENTER
.- Type "select partition 1" (without the quotations) and press ENTER
.- Type "delete partition" (without the quotations) and press ENTER
.- Exit Command Prompt and restart the computer
.- Restart the installation and... TA TA!!!

I used it in Windows Vista, but it also function on Windows 7 And Windows 8

Thank you for reading and see you later!

Sorry for my bad English, i'm Mexican :/
