What is your boot order set to in the bios ? Do you get an option at post to "change or choose" boot device ? (sometimes you have to press one of the F keys ie. "press F10 to change boot order etc."

CD Rom drive must also include DVD because Win7 is on a DVD.

Where did you get the Win7 ISO and how is it burned?

Next try setting Hard drive to boot first, then trigger DVD drive using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

You mean you have a DVD drive, right? If not, then DVDs won't work (I suspect Windows 7 couldn't be put on a CD because it's 3gb+). So you need a DVD drive for that.
