More than likely you'll have to reconfigure the boot order in the BIOS to set the CD/DVD drive before the hard drive. Reinstalling Windows is a bit extreme though. Please explain your problem in detail, there might be an easy fix.

✔ Best Answer
Apparently that laptop originally came with XP or Vista. Before trying a windows 7 install you need to make sure you can get windows 7 drivers. You may want to increase the ram too.
