I installed win7 from my vista 64 install by using daemon tools to mount the ISO then pointed to my spare partition in the win7 prompt eh voila

If you can extract the iso you also should be able to click on setup.exe in XP or Vista and point to where you want to install. I've done that once or twice from Vista.
