Background shown, no install performed

On boot from the disk (oem), I get the usual "windows is loading files", upon completion I am presented with thee win7 background with working mouse icon and nothing else... At no time am I presented with any install options, not even a Hard drive format. Any Ideas, fixes or ifall else work around??
