Hello Mohd, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did Windows 7 come preinstalled on your laptop?

If so, what brand and model number is it? We may be able to help you with how to do a factory restore of Windows 7.

If this a Windows 7 you installed yourself, then you could also create a bootable Windows 7 installation USB flash drive to use instead.

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Hope this helps for now, :)

Be sure that the external DVD drive is disconnected when you try to boot from the USB flash drive to see how it works.

If Windows 7 came preinstalled on your Lenovo Thinkpad X1, then you could use the link below at Lenovo for how to do a factory recovery of Windows 7.

Where did the install disc come from ? What files did you put on the usb drive and where did they come from ?
