extract the contents from the iso to a folder(create a folder and name it windows 7 or daddy7) using winrar or any other software. Then, find the .exe file and start installing it.
Chances are, when you went to the notebook's bios, you didnt save the settings.

That's my guess as well. I made the same mistake when I first tried to install Vista and I wondered why it wasn't working, only to realize I didn't save the settings when I changed the CD drive to the first boot device.

If you did, however, I recommend following the advice from a couple of posts in the thread already and extracting the ISO's contents to your hard drive using WinRAR, and running setup.exe from there.

And if you did save the BIOS settings after changing the boot order, then are you sure that your laptop is equipped with a DVD drive?
