Few questions:

1. Where did you get your copy of Windows 7? Could be corrupt, or corruptions caused by download. Yes, it happens

2. What did you use to create bootable Windows 7 USB?

3. Did you try recreating your USB? It may have been a corrupt install. Yes, it happens.

4. Do you have a faulty USB drive? New or Used?

5. Did you try reinserting your USB?

6. Did you try using a different USB port

7. Did you try another Win7 ISO
