Are you formatting Windows 7 partition with XP? If so, delete the formatting and let Windows 7 DVD autoformat during Copying Files phase. XP has a slightly different partition table.

I do not understand why your Windows 7 DVD will not boot. Did it boot before? What happens when you try to boot it? Are you following these steps: Boot from CD - How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

Try installing using a USB flash drive: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
