Trouble installing win7 upgrade. Cant instruct Mac to boot disk...

On the verge of pulling my hair out!
I have Mac OSX Lion running on my iMac. I experimented with partitions the other day and things went '**** up' with me having to format the windows partition in bootcamp.
I need to re-insall Windows 7 via Bootcamp. However my Windows 7 64bit Pro is the upgrade package. Therefore I have to install Vista prior to Windows 7.
The problem is installing the upgrade pack for the Windows 7 Install.
I need the iMac to boot up the Win 7 upgrade disk when powered on. Normally with a PC you would check the boot sequence in the BIOS, etc....
With the iMac that will boots into Vista i have tried holding down the option keys to access the boot volumes, but it boots up Vista.
I have tried holding down 'C' to boot from cd/dvd. Doesn't work....
Please H E L P..........
Must be a solution as I have installed it before!
