Back to the basics:
what graphics card are you using?
Did you disable the Intel Storage manager, or jmicrons? (if present)?
is there any "boot sector protection" or "virus protection" in the BIOS that you have not disabled?
and finally, can you remove EVERYTHING except:
HDD/SDD (one or the other)
SATA cable (try differing ones - I had 3 go bad on me before, same install, same day
. I thought it was the system, but nope, just three bad cables).
GPU DX10 or above perferrably. Just a rumour I heard.
one stick of RAM.
Motherboard - see if any unstable OC jumpers. My ASrock had a default set jumper that OC'd the FSB to unstable (for my trusty E6320), and I didn't figure it out until 4 weeks ago
THEN try installing.
