Im guessing you mounted the iso file and started the install. Well you learned the hard way that that doesn't work. You either need to use that iso to create a DVD using a program like imgburn(http://www.imgburn.com/), or use the iso to create a bootable usb drive(http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool).

You won't beable to install windows 7 from an iso (unless you're just upgrading from vista, which is not your case).
You should burn the .iso image onto a DVD-R and try to install from that.

(If you try to install from an .iso, when you reboot your system the image would be unmounted, and therefore unable to continue the installation)
