    Well if you want to install windows 7, I don't think without burning a DVD its possible. You need to burn the ISO in a DVD & then install it.
    Install it as a single OS & not try to dual boot along with your existing XP in the 10gb of free space.
    I advice you to get an external DVD burner attached to your PC & burn the ISO.

    I have never tried to install any OS using demon tool. or any mounting application.
    Hope this helps.

    Hey I think its possible to install Windows 7 without burning it on a DVD.
    The method I have read somewhere but it was out of my understandings. It was asked for some software which makes it possible to install Windows 7 without DVD drive or USB drive.

    I hope someone will come up with a guide for this.

    @pccare_himanshu: Thanks for the link...Here is the report that is not fine...Rest all is fine:

    Custom installation required
    You'll need to perform a custom installation of 32-bit Windows 7 and then reinstall your programs. Make sure to back up your files before you begin.
    Go online to get important information about installing Windows 7 on a PC running Windows XP

    Windows Aero support
    Your current graphics adapter won't support the Windows Aero user interface. If you want to experience the benefits of Windows Aero, contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if an upgrade is available.
    Go online to learn more about Windows Aero

    16 GB free hard disk space required
    You need at least 16 GB of free space on your hard disk to install 32-bit Windows 7. Either make room by removing unwanted files from your hard disk, or contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if a hard disk with more capacity is available for your PC.

    Outlook Express
    This program is no longer included in Windows 7. You can get similar programs for Windows 7 from other software manufacturers.
    Go to the Microsoft website to learn more
    Should I install Win 7 now>???

    For installing Windows 7 on your system, you need to check out the following links. The method is very simple and you can use without any hassles. The first thing to do is check whether your desktop or laptop PC is capable of running Windows 7. Needless to say that your motherboard should support USB Boot feature to make use of the bootable USB drive. Officially, you need at least a 1-GHz CPU and 1GB RAM, but testers of the OS have successfully got it running on machines as out of date as a 266-MHz Pentium II with 96MB of RAM.
