Dell 9020 USFF can't complete setup win7?

Hello all, this unit was brought to me with win7 Pro installed but the owner had some issues and asked me to reinstall win7. After wiping the drive clean and attempting to reinstall win7 pro, when it gets to the end of the "Completing installation" on the Installing Windows screen, I am getting a prompt stating :

Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this hardware

I tried both the win7 pro 32 and 64 bit versions but same deal. Owner said this was a business desktop which had some sort of lock on it so he could only go to the net and could not download and install any programs. What can i do here please?
