problems with system recovery options in windows 7

I am having problems with windows 7 system recovery option.
I have the windows 7 installation cd and when the box comes up for system recovery options and I check to select operating system, windows 7 doesn't appear as an operating system.

I have tried a repair disk to no avail, same problem.

Any words of wisdom

What were the symptoms that made you try booting the installation DVD ?
