Set he bios to defaults F5, try again.

Booting from the dvd or usb is not the same as installing from your dvd/usb.

Your test on your laptop is great, but it doesn`t prove the installer is OK.

I`d create a new one.

Free ISO Burner at no faster the x4 speed

This isn't adding up.
If you installed all those Windows 7 with the proper COA keys you should have a Microsoft DVD for Windows 7 somewhere. Just use one of them. They won't be corrupted and should work just fine.

So then it`s the machine you`re trying to install on.

Keep fiddling with the bios.
