Boot your PC with the Win 7 disk in the drive. You should see an option for repair. Choose that.

When in the dvd enter language select next. When in the install page click repair now in the lower left corner.

This is because you are running the disk from the OS and not booting it. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD shows how.

You can also tap the F key given on first screen for Boot Menu to trigger DVD drive. Do you get the prompt to Press Any Key to boot disk? If not your disk may not be burned correctly. Where did you get it.

Once you boot the DVD it will always offer Repair My Computer on second screen.
