Do you know how to enter the bios on your system?
You'll need to put cdrom/dvd in front of the harddrive in boot devices or it will not seek the win 7 disc.

Keep hitting delete as the pc is booting up.

Then find the boot options and change the order so the cd drive is the 1st boot device.

As it is a custom build computer, are you able to contact who built it?

To get into your BIOS to check the boot settings you press a key on your keyboard on startup, but until you can find out we're struggling to help you.

Your full computer specs would be a big help too.

actually if it is an ASUS board delete should be the right key.
just start tapping it the very moment you turn the computer on and don't stop until you see the bios screen.
It wouldn't hurt to dig up the manual on the asus site and look over the bios settings that pertain to boot order so you know where you are going first though.
