At this point in the final stages (Im assuming) of the installation, do I still need the flash drive or should I attempt to boot the hard drive without it?

Update: I reset the machine and selected “start windows normally”. It went to the windows splash screen for a second, then flashed BSOD and rebooted. When it came back on, I started windows again. After the splash screen, it’s just a blank black screen with the mouse pointer on it instead of the login screen.

Edit: I attempted to boot into safe mode, and it did the same thing. Black screen with the mouse pointer in the middle.

Did you check the HDD for issues?
Boot from the Win 7 installation disk and hit shift+F10 to launch a CMD window.
Diskpart
list volume (take note of the drive letter assigned to the drive)
exit
chkdsk x: /f (Replace x with the drive letter)

Do you have another computer you could use to do the install, then move drive back?
You can't use an external connection to do install, has to be internal.

No, I don’t have another computer to use. I have my sons laptop with Win10 on it, that’s what I used to make the bootable flash drive with, but that’s it. But how would you do the install on another machine? I thought you couldn’t switch windows drives between computers because windows won’t accept a motherboard change.

Did you have Windows 7 installed on this same pc before, and did you change the motherboard?
I had an impossibility of installing 7 on a pc that originally came installed with 8 as the MB would not accept 7.
Ended up giving up, and installing 8 (and had to also tweek the BIOS.)

The fact that XP went well points to this possibility.

No, this motherboard has never seen a successful 7 installation (a few attempts like this, though). Other than that, I’ve just ran XP on it, which I’m this close > . < to going back to lol.

I’ve never fooled with 8. Those in the audio profession always steered clear of 8 like the plague.

@sverne, Any computer that came with Win 8.x can have Win 7 installed.
You have to set BIOS properly and may have to add some drivers to the Win 7 installation disk.
If you wish, open your own thread and we will guide you.
