Extract ISO files to XP desktop, try to run Setup.

Test the ISO by installing ImgBurn, select Verify Disk, then load ISO in using file icon. Make sure it says "bootable" in text on left side. If not, download ISO again.

Now insert the DVD, click Verify button to verify DVD. If necessary burn new DVD at 4x speed with Verify.

Try writing the ISO to a 4 gb+ flash stick using Ultra ISO trial version Bootable tab.

Boot the flash stick by tapping F-key given on first bootup screen for Boot Menu; flash will be listed as Hard Drive

If you cannot get it to work using gregs advice. Go to the microsoft site and download upgrade advisor, it will tell you what has to be changed to install.

I see that you were able to extract and run Windows 7 from XP.

You ask how it can be formatted. The answer is it cannot be formatted when run from XP. You would need to be able to boot from DVD to use Custom Drive Tools to partition and format.

You can either overwrite XP completely, or install Win7 to a second partition.

If you want a Dual Boot with Win7 on another partition, you can use free Partition Wizard to shrink XP and create a new NTFS formatted partition to install Win7 from the XP desktop.

This achieves a formatted install for Win7. Later we can help you remove the Dual Boot and recover the XP partition into Win7.

i would have bet on this after seeing that your hard drive is pata. there comes a time when people must buy new hardware. your system is too old.
