Windows 7 won't install on SSD

So I got a new CPU and motherboard and wanted to install windows 7 on a new SSD. I put the Windows 7 Home Premium CD into the CD/DVD ROM and start the computer. I go into the BIOS and set CDDVDROM as boot option 1. Save and exit. Computer restarts, gets to the screen where you can press Del to go to BIOS and stays there for about a minute. If you don't press a button to go to BIOS it goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor. After a while it says "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press any key". You can press any of those buttons and go to the BIOS or boot options but it still takes about a minute for it to happen.

I've tried launch DBAN from the CDROM as well and it says the same thing. When I go in BIOS and look at the sata connections I can see my SSD and CDROM connected and enabled.

I have no idea what to try next or what to do next. The only things connected to the motherboard are the SSD and CDROM by the way.

System specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel I5 6600k LGA1151
Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 3 LGA 1151
HyperX 2x4GB DDR4
Gigabyte Radeon Rx480 8GB
SansDisk 240GB SSD Plus
Some kind of LG CDROM
