Try redownloading. It is a large file and could easily be broken(don't know a better word) during download.

Do you have all Windows 7 updates currently available? Does your CPU support virtualization?

Well you might have to use a different VM software. Follow the tutorial on my video that i made for some reason. How to Install and Activate Windows XP mode in Virtualbox - YouTube

This no longer matters. XP mode works without virtualization now.

The OP doesn't indicate if he has SP1 or not in his specs. If he doesn't, then it does matter.
