Sounds like a message from the XP OS, meaning the disk is not booting in time before BIOS hands it over to the OS.

Is the DVD drive set first to boot in BIOS setup, or are you tapping the Fkey for one-time BIOS Boot Menu at boot to trigger DVD? Does it prompt you to "Press any key to boot disk?"

If not where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Try burning another using ImgBurn at 4x speed.
