All bets are off in Hackintosh because you've left the protection of Windows workarounds. But everything that can be done otherwise is here for Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums

I would replace the installation media unless its known-good from another completed install, and test the HD if probs persist.
