How are you doing the install? Have you booted from the Windows 7 DVD, or have you booted into your existing OS and are using it to run the upgrade program from the DVD?

Try disconnecting first 2 HDDs. Install win7 on HDD then reconnect other two HDDs. On boot hit key (F12 on Mine) and select which HDD to boot to.
