What I do need for such scenario is:
1. A tool that is able to boot an ISO file on the hard.
2. Formatting the Primary Partition then install windows 7 on the primary partition.
Please advise on how can i perform the above scenario
N.B> I do want to carry on the above scenario and not other scenarios.
Thanks for your support

If not from here then where from?
I'd like to install windows 7 from an ISO file not on the primary partition (D:).
You must be confusing "primary" with "first" partition. There are two types of partitions- primary and logical, add an extended one which is a holder for logical ones.
So you can partition your disk with 4 primary partitions, of which one will be first, but all will be primary ones.
In addition, C, D etc. etc. are Windows user friendly numerations and do not describe at all whether C, or D are first partition, primary, logical and so on, just a meaningless drive letter. Look at disk management console and try to provide correct information what is what, what is going to be reformatted, and where the ISO file will be if need further help.

If you install Grub4Dos on the disk on which you install Windows (but into another partition), then... when the Windows installer finish the install... will overwrite the boot sector (replace BootLoader) and then you can't start Grub4Dos (and your ISO image), just only... the Windows installed... starts.
If you want to install it on your main disk ... please look for information about samples to launch isos with "Grub4Dos" because once you install Grub4Dos in your main disk, you can not start Windows, if you have not written the necessary entries for it (on the menu of "Grub4Dos").
Also note that an ISO of 2/3/4GB is too large to be loaded into RAM ... Note that this requires a lot of RAM.
I suggest only... I clarify: I don't know if it will work, I haven´t experience with this matter yet.

1. Creating a Bootable CD with Grub4Dos (to point "Windows 8" ISO image on the selected partition)
2. Put Windows 8 ISO Image on D:\
3. Boot the CD and let the magic start.
btw, the laptop I'm using is "Dell Latitude E6410"
Do you think this Scenario is applicable? or there is another tool that can help?

Standard reply #32 would apply:
Be very aware that the scenario you (partially and vaguely ) depicted is very likely to represent a chocolate covered banana, however:
(a notoriously slippery matter )

I haven't tried it on Windows 7 yet. I want to try it on the last windows available so, as the last available windows version is 8 so I'm gonna try it on Windows 8
That is All!
Let us know how it goes.
