You could always follow the guides to have it install from a USB flash drive, but I would first try and figure out why the DVD isn't booting. If it is legitimate from your company, then it should be bootable. Did someone give it to you burned already, or was it an ISO file? How did you burn it, if the latter? Do you see one single file on the disc, or does it look like a normal install disc's structure?

DVD not bootable - indicates one of two conditions, or both:

DVD contains the ISO as an ISO

Target machine does not have Boot From DVD drive selected - either as a default or boot selectable.

Doesn't it have to be installed from inside Windows, and not at startup?

No, it should be bootable. I don't ever install an OS without first wiping the previous on off, including partitions.

According to Microsoft web site...In order to install the upgrade version of Windows 7, you must have a qualifying Windows operating system installed and activated. You cannot install an upgrade version of Windows 7 on a blank hard drive. The installation procedure does not ask you to insert a Windows disc in the drive for verification, the actual qualifying operating system must be installed.
If you do not have a qualifying Windows operating system installed with a genuine license activated, then you cannot use the upgrade version of Windows 7 - you would need a "full version" Windows 7 license.

In summary:

1. A qualifying Windows operating system must be installed.
2. The qualifying Windows operating system must have a genuine license (product key) and it must be activated.
3. To upgrade, boot to the qualifying Windows desktop, insert the Windows 7 Upgrade disc in the DVD drive.
4. When the setup menu appears, select Custom (advanced) to initiate a clean install procedure.

try to boot from a bootable Linux "Live" CD/DVD. Something like Ubuntu or Knoppix. If that doesn't boot either, then you know the problem isn't with the Windows 7 media.
