Are you using an original (Microsoft manufactured) install DVD, or one that you purchased and downloaded then made yourself? If you created the disc yourself from a downlaoded ISO, have you tried making a new disk?

And you also can "upgrade install" from XP to 7, at least not in the tradional sense that preserves programs and data. You'll end up doing a clean install anyway...
