Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

Check for newer BIOS update on mobo Support Downloads webpage. If not then reset the BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

While in BIOS setup set SATA controller to AHCI to try install.

Wipe the HD from DVD Command line using Diskpart Clean Command accessing DISKPART At PC Startup.

Follow these steps to Clean Install Windows 7

If the disk is clean an unscratched then we can rule out the media for now. Proceed.
