I moved your post here to the correct forum. It's not a "Switcher" subject. Now to answer your post....

Burn the Windows 7 DVD (preferably the 64 bit version) to a USB flash drive as an ISO. Make sure you burn it correctly so that it's a bootable ISO. After that, follow the Boot Camp instructions for your MacBook Pro. You will also be required during the Boot Camp setup to download a driver image from Apple. You likewise need to place that driver image on a USB flash drive.

Great, glad to hear you succeeded. By the way, that's a nice Sager PC you have. I love Sager PCs but the only problem with them is they are heavier than a normal laptop. However, they're built like a tank. ;D
