Are you using a windows 7 OS install disk.
It looks like the disk you are using is non boot able.
It should come up with a message press any key to boot.

If you have an upgrade version of windows 7 the install will not boot when placed in the cd/dvd drive and the laptop is set to boot from the cd/dvd drive.
The upgrade to windows 7 from vista must be preformed through windows.

The full version of windows can be booted from the CD/DVD drive if it is set to the first boot device.

Looks like you have the upgrade version. I mean was Vista running on the laptop with the old hard disk drive in it.

Yes it's a 7 os disk , and it's not a upgrad disk this would seem a simple process , I have done it a million times before but this is the first time I have come to a problem like this. It's a fresh hdd with nothing on it but I can't get the cd/DVD drive to boot or USB . I guess since its a hp it's Doing this ?? When I go into bios it says os is vista came installed on it but there's no os on there atm .

Check BIOS in case you have to disable UEFI boot and put in to legacy mode.
