I just replaced my old hard drive with a new 1TB due to a hard drive because my old hard drive failed. I am attempting to run an installation of Windows 7 and once I set my #1 boot device to my DVD drive and insert boot media, it begins to load at the "Windows is loading files" screen with a full progress bar. It stew,s to be stuck at this screen. What should I do?

I have tried:
-Removing 1 Ram stick


My specs are

Processor: Phenom ii x4 965 BE
GPU: Radeon 7770
Corsair 650W
8gb Ram
ASRock 970 E3 Motherboard

New Hard Drive: WD Black Desktop Hardrive 1TB
a b $ Windows 7

Go into BIOS Setup and choose "Load BIOS defaults", then save and exit BIOS.
Now try running Windows Setup again.

The same thing happens. The progress bar loads to full and it just sits at the "Windows is loading files" screen.

I have also tried putting the cd into a portable cd drive and boot from that. This still does not work, the same problem continues.
