    Some older machines have MBR/boot sector protection of HDD0 right from the BIOS. Check that.

    would be better if OP can tell us what kind of computer being used (name & model of PC) and what kind of drive that person is installing Win7 onto (either an HDD or SSD)

    In that sense, HDD0 = boot disk. Could be an SSD, too (unless it's IDE).

    With BIOS protection of MBR/boot record on, the BIOS would display a message on access, but only in the real text modes. In graphics modes there is no message, only a silent block.

    There are also AV software and security programs doing that.
