Then I'd reinstall that OEM version of XP using the Product Key on sticker.

Do you have the packaging with COA sticker for Win7, because it they had installed a bootleg copy it could well be interfering. The only way to know for sure if this is the case is to wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command, so you'd need to know you have Genuine Windows 7 to reinstall.

Are you booting XP CD to install? The reason I ask is because you said you have the XP Setup files on your fourth partition. You should install from booted CD. Is this a known-good XP CD which is clean and unscratched.
