Two questions ...
Is the DVD you are trying the install with a factory created disk or is it one you created from a downloaded ISO file? If it's one you created try another burn using ImgBurn at a speed no greater than 4x and let it do a verify before it finishes. ImgBurn Free ISO Burner
Is the method in this tutorial at the link below how you are creating a bootable USB stick? USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
Firstly The disc is one that I have bought myself - it is not a downloaded ISO. Secondly no I used a different guide, but the same method.
Note: I found this part interesting
You can only create a 32-bit Windows 7
USB key from within a 32-bit Vista or Windows 7.
You can only create a 64-bit Windows 7
USB key from within a 64-bit Vista or Windows 7
The laptop I used was Widows Vista Ultimate 32bit. The Windows 7 I am using is 64bit. Now I got to the same point of expanding Windows with the DVD as I did with the USB. So... ummm... I don't know where to go from here.
