as your last SQL Server installation failed and left inconsistent installation please try to uninstall SQL Server from the control panel and than restart your system.
Even SQL Server Enterprise edition is not supported on Windows 7 it is possible but you need to install SP1 for Windows 7.
See this thread with the same issue: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/88D12F80-1191-4AF7-8E2D-0B9F04AE3029 (Alex Fenq answers)

Please Enterprise Edition is not supported on client operating system like Windows 7 as mentioned by Daniel.
Try to install Developer Edition instead.
Hope this helps.
