Welcome!

Did you download the ISO from Technet or MSDN, or Torrent?

If you did not get it from MSDN or Technet, you must purchase a DVD from somewhere.

I recommend Newegg.com, Windows 7: Shop, Buy, Download, Upgrade, Search for Current or New PC, or Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

You must burn the ISO to a CD using an image burner.

I suggest this tool: Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file
