Could well be .

If you can boot from usb - the boot into Vista . put 7 dvd in drive - copy the dvd to HD as an .iso , then create bootable flash drive with this USB/DVD Tool: ( download link at the bottom of this tutorial )

Make bootable iso from student d/l


If you don't have an app. to copy the dvd as an .iso - use Alex's isorecorder - install it ( you don't see anything - it's on your rt click menu).

Rt click the dvd drive and select Creat Image from cd ( it means dvd as well if you are on Vista)

ISO Recorder v3


OR:

Instead of booting from usb flash

just rt clik the dvd and Copy , then Paste the contents to your drive and you will have the installation files - run setup.exe and install that way to a partition you have already created.

Keep us posted.

Never mind.

Boot the Vista dvd to system recovery options command prompt.

Take Vista dvd out - put 7 dvd in .

At the prompt, type;

notepad

then press enter

when it pops up click File>Save , select All files in the drop down at the bottom,

Navigate to dvd drive. Inside the "sources" folder find setup.exe and run it .
this wont work too...

What about these methods - you should be able to copy from the dvd - even if it won't boot properly:

Tht's a good idea. If you can't boot the 7 dvd, or the XP cd - something is not right.
