XP ISO backup install in windows 7

So, my CD-ROM drive died after 6 years of valiant service (RIP) I have backups of most everything, including my XP disc. I want to install it on my 320gb HDD so I can run CS:S alot better (7 crashs tons with CS:S) How can I do this?

I have tried mounting it with Daemon tools, and I have tried using XP mode virtual PC all to no avail. Anyone know of a way for me to go about this?
