Windows 7: Windows 7 Crashed after delete OEM partition

That means that you are not booting from the discs correctly. Enter your BIOS setup (F2 usually on first screen), and set your CD drive to the first priority booting.

Alternatively, you could press F12 or F11 (depending on your machine), and manually tell the computer to boot from the CD drive.

This option may be disabled in the BIOS; if necessary, enable it.
