IT would seem you are attempting to install a Windows 7 With SP1 "integrated"  directly from a new Windows 7 install DVD.  SP1 is also a completely separate installable module which you can download separately and run its own install process.

No, it is not possible to remove the SP1 on the disc. If disc you have is the same as the edition you have installed, you can use it and do a repair upgrade over the current installation.
