If you had GRUB bootloader, you really need to deep clean the HD to remove all traces or you'll have problems.

Boot Win7 DVD, press F10 to open a Command Line, or click through in Repair console to open one, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (replace # with HD #)
CLEAN ALL
EXIT.

Now return to Custom Install, use Drive tools to create partition(s) and format before intall.
