Current OS is windows 7 and this is the model of my laptop HP Pavillion g6-1300ev Notebook PC
and my bios menu is the same with the photos in the link you sent me.So there is no need to enable legacy boot because its already enabled.What do you think is the problem then?Because when i try to boot from CD i cant find it.There are 2 options to boot: 1.Notebook Hard drive and 2.Internal CD/DVD Rom Drive

Option 2 clearly is booting from the optical drive. If you selelct that and it doesn't boot then there are two possibilities: the optical drive is bad or the Windows DVD (Windows 7 comes on a DVD not a CD) is bad.
Try the DVD in another computer to rule out a bad DVD. If you don't have access to another computer, ask a friend to help you troubleshoot the Windows DVD.

You will probably have more success creating and using a bootable DVD than you will with creating and using a bootable USB thumb drive.

managed and Macboatmaster bring out a good point.
You cannot simply burn a Windows 7 .ISO file to a DVD and expect it to boot.
You need to burn an image of it to make it bootable.

The old saying "3 is a crowd" applies here, so I'm going to drop out.

I burned the disk image file in 2 dvd disks,first time i used the default program that windows 7 have and in the second dvd i used CDBurnerXP.I cant find any of the DVD disks when i try to boot from them.I am thinking that the problem is on my cd/dvd drive and maybe i should try to boot using USB.Do you think Rufus is good to make the USB bootable?
