Does it even see your hard drive? Was it a working hard drive before this? What was on the hard drive before ... Linux maybe? Or did it stop working so you are trying a reinstall? Did you ever see a S.M.A.R.T. drive warning from this hard drive?

I would recommend formatting your hard drive (or writing zeros would be better)

This will make sure that all data is written over, which should allow for a smoother clean install

Had a similar issue with a customer's laptop. Found out the drive was toast.
