Sorry to say your video is useless, shows nothing.

Do you see anything when you turn on the computer?
Does the manufacturer's logo show?
Do you end up with a blinking cursor at the top left of the screen?

The WIn7 Upgrade kit DVD can be booted to install with the Product Key that came packaged with it. Did you save these? You'll need at least the key to reinstall. We might be able to help you retrieve it if you threw away a $100+ Product key.

But first you can try to repair WIn7 using these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

The latest WIn7 installer ISO and tool to burn to DVD or write to ISO is provided along with everything that can be done to get Win7 started, leading up to rescuiing your files to get a superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I just referred to two tutorials and how their steps include how to rescue your files. I'd read them and see.
