What happens when you try to boot? Try manually booting from the DVD, through use of the popup boot menu. Usually F11 or F12 during the POST.

Are you trying to install the 64 or 32 bit Windows 7? If you are trying to install the 32 bit version, you can boot up to XP, then run the setup.exe file found on the install disc.
the dvd is bootable because there is a boot directory in the installtion folder also it opens up when I insert it while I'm at windows.
I'm trying to install 64 bit version of windows 7 ultimate so I can't upgrade from my xp 32 bit

it was iso.
