Stuck on "setup is starting" screen or BSOD 7B

Last response: in Windows 7

First time building a PC, trying to install Windows on my Crucial M4 via USB (don't have a disk drive...) and I get stuck on the "setup is starting" screen. If I try to boot with my older HDD that has Windows installed on it, I get a BSOD with error 7B. Google tells me that something is wrong with the hard drive driver, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Any help?

Try this, it lists step-by-step installation, in case you missed something.
If the Windows on your old HDD was installed on another machine it will almost certainly fail to run...

This is what I was following, still stuck on the "setup is starting" screen :(
