Please provide details of your pc/laptop.
Are you wishing to have dual boot or clean install?

On the bootup GRUB, select " check installation medium for defects " From the options.

Is the photo of, when you start that laptop?
Do you have access to win7 ?
Hope you backed up your files.

Note: Backup should be done prior to any system update.

Are you trying to install Zorin to help get your files back from windows 7 ?

Further looking at your 1st photo,
To me is seems like there is No Working windows 7 OS.
Because it's setting your driver location to,
sda & sda1 .
Also notice to says " Looking for another operating system"

I think you have tried to dual boot with corrupt drive.

Also why is there a keyboard on top of your laptop?

I wonder if "Boot repair disk" may help. How to rescue a screwed up GRUB on a broken dual boot hard drive? - #2 by Maxwell-J

You can't just attempt to install any GNU/Linux alongside of Windows 7 - you have to shring the C:\ drive first to make room for it. Also if the notebook has/had 4 Primary Partitions present, no GNU/Linux can be installed as an OS installed using mbr (master boot record) can only ever contain 4 primary partitions which is what most Laptop manufacturers do, speaking from experience with having an HP Mini netboot - System Reserved, C:\ drive, Media creation Partition, System Restore Partition (Factory Reset partition.
You could try EasyBCD from NeoSmart to recover your Windows mbr, provided it has not been overwritten. I would boot Zorin in to Live mode, run GParted and see what shows up, partition wise, on the hard drive and post a screenshot back here.
