Where did you get Win7? Did you burn it yourself? Try burning another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Or try install install using USB flash stick: How to: install Windows (any version from XP to Win7) from a USB/flash drive | Featured | dotTech

Remove all but 2gb of Ram to try install. Test your RAM using memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes or overnight.

Wipe the HD before install using this method: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Test the HD using maker's diag/repair full CD scan:
From the WIn7 DVD Command Line run Disk Check

Reset the CMOS: Try setting SATA controller in BIOS setup to AHCI, then IDE mode.
