U have to burn the .iso image. It should be around 3-4 Gb. Make sure that all files are present in it. If unsure, i would suggest get a proper working dvd from someone..

You can retain Ubuntu if you want. Install Windows 7 on proper drive and use a tool call EasyBCD which can recover Ubuntu into dual boot.

In case u want to have both os dual boot.You can also use the in built partition manager to create a new partion and then install win 7 on it. Then use easyBCD to make boot options and make either of them bootable..

PS : You need to make a bootable DVD with proper files for your DVD to work, if you are having issues, get a Windows 7 DVD before formatting your PC.

You will need gparted. Available from Ubuntu Software Center. Make sure the partition for Windows 7 in NTFS.
