Instalation

The problem lies in where you are trying to install Windows.
"ANY idea how to install Windows 7 to advent 4211-b?
Of course I used external dvd(usb) and external HDD (usb) You cant install Windows to an external drive.

Good catch, Jon.

Why do you have an USB external HD plugged in?

Unplug the external HD, set internal HD as second to boot after DVD drive, then boot and install.

Have you tried install with all USB devices except DVD drive unplugged?

Clear the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Look at the AHCI setting and see if you can change it to IDE mode. You should be looking at the SATA settings unless you have an IDE HD.

Next try wiping the HD before install using DISKPART from booted DVD Command Line: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Next try install from USB flash stick with DVD drive unplugged: extract ISO from DVD using ImgBurn, download and install UltraISO trial version, Open ISO on File tab, Write Image on Bootable tab, Format first, then Write. Boot stick under USB or HD's in BIOS boot menu.
