Kindly let me know how you are installing Win7?

If you want to restore your system back to factory settings and if hard drive is never formatted before and if your system has a “DELL factory Image”, then you can follow the below mentioned URL which will help you in restoring your system to factory settings:

Else if you are trying to install OS with the help of OS discs, then you can follow the steps for OS installation mentioned in the URL below:

Ensure backing up your data before reinstalling Operating system or factory restore.

Kindly revert and let us know the status.

Where did you get Win7? The error is often caused by a bad installer. Did you burn the DVD yourself?

Start over and follow the steps given here to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Read the Special Note for Dell Owners at end.

You can also run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore.
