Windows 7: Win 7 re-installation: Win cannot be installed to this disk.

Windows 10 Pro x64

Win 7 ultimate - 64 bit

Thank you everyone for your help and time. The new HDD just arrived minutes ago and I'm currently installing win8. I got past where do you want to install window on the first try. I knew the HDD was failing because I've seen this kind of behavior before in my older system. But I was hoping that I could have got it working for at least another month since a new HDD wasn't on the budget.
