Simple... enter BIOS on start up and select the firts boot device as your DVD drive. Save the changes and re-boot... you pc will probably as you to press a key during start up to boot from DVD...

i switched the boot order to that and it didn't work...also it might be a good idea to note that this is a custom built gaming PC

Question: Is it the real thing, as in genuine Windows 7, or some pirated image that you pulled from a dodgy torrent site? If option 2, I'm not surprised if it won't boot.

If you don't know what that means, stop everything you are doing and take the PC to a shop. You don't know enough about your PC to being trying to install anything.

Are you are trying to use the install, or the restore disk from your laptop to install Windows 7 on another computer?
If that is what you are tyring to do, it simply won't work.
