    Your attempting a Clean Install of win 8.1? or a upgrade install over your win 7?
    Most win 7 installs are BIOS MBR, Win 8 wants to default install UEFI GPT. Also you can't upgrade a Win 7 32 to win 8 64

    Are you booting the installation media. ?

    If so, what is it, how did you create it and any other relevant information.

    You will have to tell us what you are doing. You can't expect us to guess.
