Hi Olq8korv

When you first boot your PC you will see Boot Priority (or similar) and the keyboard key, that will be something like Delete, F12, Esc, etc then you can change your boot order.

It looks like it's set to a USB CD ROM drive. Windows 7 uses a DVD, so it may not work.

You can extract the ISO from disk using ImgBurn and write it to bootable flash stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive

Then follow these same steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
