Try pressing F12 at boot, use the menu to boot CD/DVD drive.

You do not enter Windows to boot DVD/CD.

Either use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen, or enter BIOS setup to set DVD/CD drive to boot first in order, then look for prompt to "Press Any Key to Boot CD/DVD"

Boot critical files are compressed. In order to fix this, boot the Windows 7 Repair CD or install DVD, select "Repair My Computer," on System Recovery Options click "Load Drivers," then OK Now when the mini-explorer opens up, click on Computer, then rightclick on Windows 7 drive, choose Properties, untick the box for compressing files on the drive. Click Apply, back out of the Repair console, Windows 7 should start on Reboot.
