As long as the ISO file is intact and says "bootable" when loaded into ImgBurn, I've never heard of one fail to boot when burned slowly at 4x speed.

It would more likely be the HASH, so then you should check the HASH of the ISO against the Win7 official HASH.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Sounds to me like you have 1 or 2 thiings possibly wrong
1. As asked where did you get the ISO? Never annswered so I suspect it's a bad ISO, but
You stated you have a good XP that does the same thing.
2. I would think since Vista became corrupted you might have a failing Hard Drive or to many corrupted sectors.
If you can try using a program to over right on the drive running it several times, and also doing a chkdsk or using the manufacturers tools to check the drive.
Then give the install another try. Fabe

Even if your copy of Windows is good and you burn it as 4x speed, the fact that you've installed Windows XP, Vista and now Windows 7 on that drive, you should follow the advice given earlier.

Follow the tutorial, wipe the drive and do a fresh install. Windows 7 has run EXCELLENT since I've done my install following this tutorial:
