I'd like to try to help.

When you see this message, at what part of the installation does it occur?

Do you have a USB thumb drive plugged into the motherboard?

Also, try reformatting the drive using SeaTools.

Are you plugging your drive into the blue or the white SATA ports on the board?

Also, is this a brand-new drive? If not, you might have old partitions on there or something similarly funky going on that's not allowing the W7 installer to create partitions properly. In that case, just download Parted Magic and use gparted to completely remove all disk partitions.
