Using the suggested methods I have made a 'good' windows 7 disc. To my knowledge I now have 3 good bootable discs and none of them work. It doesn't recognize my Ubunutu disc or Gparted disc but that could be due to the fact I used Nero for them. It doesn't recognize my ubuntu USB boot nor does it start the windows seven boot disc

All the suggestions include creating yet another boot disc :P As it is I am going to CD's like meals. Is there any formatting software I can boot from my 1GB USB stick?!?

Cheers for comments so far

Almost the same so good as well. What ISO did you install on USB using UNetBootin?

Ubuntu 12.04 Iso x64. The CD version but I read it would still work. Should I try it again downloading the file through UNetBootin?!?

I am downloading a more stable version 11.10 Live x64 through UNetBootin, I will try booting from that and if it doesn't work I think it could be hardward or MBR loss which is stopping it booting.

I'll get back to you when it's finished.

I just tried booting from my Windows 7 CD again and I got the error message:

Couldn't boot CD: Could not find BOOTMGR

Any ideas?

You get different error messages all the time?
a file called bootmgr must be in root folder of dvd. It's the bootmanager. Can you find it?
