That's because XPired is too old to have the modern SATA drivers needed to detect your HD - you'd have to slipstream them in.

Did you reset BIOS to defaults before trying WIn7 install? Do you have a single SATA HD and is it correctly detected in BIOS setup? If this is the case and you already tried AHCI setting, then try IDE mode. What are the other available settings for SATA controller?

Forget XP it's outdated.
Go into bios and see if the hard drive is recognized there.

It does seem to be that the DVD Player is not reading the disk correctly.
Have you tried my advice in post#10 above?
