If you are using a USB flash drive to install W7, you must boot it from one of the notebook's USB 2 ports.
It will not work from a USB 3 port because W7 does not have the required USB 3 drivers to proceed any further than that error.

You're very welcome.
See if running the diskpart utility>clean disk during the install works.
Watch this video. He does it on W10 but W7 works the same way.

Watch this video...you will run the same diskpart command from the setup, but use a different command.
