Are you booting the DVD from the One Time Boot Menu?
If yes, DVD is not bootable or DVD drive not working.

Write the ISO to 4gb+ flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool .

Did you download the licensed version on the COA sticker? Check now on the bottom of laptop to be sure, and that the Product Key is readable. You will need it to activate.

Then follow these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
