I would suggest a Clean Install using this Tutorial.
Since you have DVD, you can skip making the USB Stick and start from this picture in the directions.
Read instruction in the tutorial starting from this picture.
After Complete Windows 7 Installation, Load ALL drivers BEFORE installing Updates.
Family Pack version of Windows 7
Probably will have to Activate using this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE/MediaBootInstall to 0
Run AS Administrator from command prompt
Run activation again.
If NO GO then type in Slui 4 and tap enter.
Call MS at the number on the screen and use Automated Telephone Activation.
The answer to the last question is ONE.
Pretty sure we'll loose OP on this one as is too complicated of a procedure. :( :(

"system disc says it compatable with 7 ?" It might be compatable with Win7 but you should visit the mobo website and download "ALL" Win7 drivers.
When your install is complete install the drivers. Install the chipset driver first, then you can install the remainder of drivers.
