    What is the installation media? That is, did the Windows 7 installation disk come with this Dell or did you buy a separate license, or what?

    Did you verify this notebook supports Windows 7 first? According to the specs page here, it supports XP and Windows 2K.

    You need to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and then check the Dell website to ensure there are W7 drivers available for it.

    Does it boot to the install disk? If not, you will need to change the boot order in the BIOS.

    Did you try the normal restore? How to manually reinstall Windows 7 on a Dell computer? | Dell US

    Need more information. When you attempt to install Window after your computer boots to the DVD, what happens? What is the error message?

    Is this disk a genuine Microsoft Windows 7 installation disk?
