" So the official DVD came in the mail this morning, but I get the same result. So you think my next step should be to wipe my HDD using that tutorial Doc Brown supplied? Any other hardwear things I should try first? "

Yep, I think you need to have a wiped Clean HD at this point, for success

You don't need to worry about the repair Disc since you have the Full win7 Installer Disc. Boot to it, & follow the Tutorial to use Diskpart to wipe & clean HD

You need to have the win7 DVD boot as the first thing when you power ON. Dis-connect all un-necessary USB connected devices. Basicaly only keyboard, mouse, monitor.

Yup, same result. I thought maybe hitting the space bar would do something different, but no same error. Got another way to wipe the HDD?
