Theres different types of optical disc drives (ODD) and each performs different functions.

A BD-RE DL recorder will read and write every format but its way too expensive.

I attached a wiki chart below. There are differences.

Bluray Burner lets you burn BD disk that will be playable in bluray devices. The quality comes into question if you have a suitable format. So if you just add a DVD to a blurary burner it will play the DVD just like a regular DVD player would. The quality doesn't increase.

Verify your ISO and burn using ImgBurn: load in ISO to see if it says "Bootable" in text at left. If not, download another ISO and verify it same way.

If so, insert DVD and click "Verify" button to verify against ISO. You may need to burn another DVD at 4x speed. Or try install using flash stick: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create - Windows 7 Forums.URL

Go over the steps given in this tutorial to make sure you have set BIOS correclty to boot DVD: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD.URL

You can also run the installer from XP to get Win7 installed if you want. Choose to overwrite XP partition.
