Seja bem-vindo ao Forum.

Set BIOS to boot from the HDD and to start installation launch boot menu (F?) and choose the Win 7 installation disk.

What you want to do?
- Clean installation (recommended) - It will delete all partitions so backup your data to an external disk. Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums
- Repair installation - You launch setup under windows. It will reinstall Win 7 keeping all data and programs. Repair Install - Windows 7 Help Forums

For the updates MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums
