Where did you get "the windows 7 disc" ?
Maybe it is a bad disc ?
Is your BIOS setup to boot from the optical disc as the first device ?

This tutorial has everything needed to reinstall Windows including where to get the latest Windows installation ISO and how to burn it to DVD.
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
You do need a valid genuine readable COA key for your licensed version.

Is this an OEM PC such as HP, Dell, Gateway, Lenovo, ... , or a custom/home built ?
Did your PC come with Ultimate pre-installed ?

Hi Pbmaster2k89,

It could be an issue with the disc or the drive. You can create a USB drive as well for reinstalling windows.

Check this link for creating a bootable pen drive:

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
