Hi and welcome to sevenforums

Where did you get your win 7 dvd from and how did you burn it (using what app and how fast did you burn it). Did you format the hard drive? have you partitioned the HD?

It could be a badly burned DVD. Burn your ISO once again, this time use the slowest possible speed (max 4X). I have some bad experiences with Nero, I use Active ISO Burner, you can download it free here.

Don't think it's a bad burn as the XP cd won't install either.

You are probably right, of course. Too hasty conclusion from my side.
