|Yes, I wasn't suggesting you stick with Win8 suggestions were to get your PC to boot to dvd.
You should be able to boot from the windows 8 DVD into Recovery Console (via F8 / dvd setup)
start up Diskpart, typing everything in bold followed by [Return]
select HDD with win8 on it (probably disk 0)
select disk <n>
create partition primary
Replace Win8 DVD with Win7, type exit to reboot,
and it should automatically boot to dvd without intervention.
I've removed windows 8 and windows server 2012 this way, so it is possible.

Got a problem?
Sleep on it.
