[Windows 7] Bootable DVD


I have a new hdd and I got a dvd with win7.
Unfortunately it isnt bootable, so how can I make it bootable?
I only have a laptop(with dvd burner) an empty dvd and the win7 dvd.
So how can I make it bootable?
Rip the files off, and then?

Sounds like your DVD was burned as a data disc... reburn ISO as a disc image and it will be bootable...

I dont have the ISO here, and yes it was burned as a data disk.(I didnt do it myself)
What programmes I do use to make it bootable?
And with what programme should I burn, does that matter?
