Looks like you might have a few defective tracks to where the system could not write. Run this command: chkdsk /f

Run the maker's HD Diagnostics extended CD scan linked by Theog.

Then boot the installer, use Custom install to create one large partition, try install: Clean Install Windows 7

If it fails try chkdsk /f again now that you have a defined partition.

I suggest you get anew hard drive.

No point in trying to use that one after those messages.

Sounds like you may be out of luck. New hard drives can fail as easily as old ones.

I hope you have backups of your data. Data recovery services are very expensive.
