Re: "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed"

The error that you are getting is caused due to using an Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Chipset (ICH5R). Actually, the driver on the Windows 7 install media does not support this controller. So, a driver update should result in resolution; but the latest version of the Intel driver which supports this chipset (version 5.5) is only supported on earlier version of Windows.
