Trouble reactivating Windows 7 64bit

I have had a devil of a time trying to installing WinXP in a SATA partition that I have set aside for it.
So far, no luck!
Now I want to get Windows 7 back again and now I can't even do that.
When I start my desktop and the Win7 CD/DVD is in the Drive and select "Repair your computer" I get
this error message: "This version of System Recovery Option is not compatible with the version
of Windows you are trying to repair."
Now what should I do to get around this hurdle?
