You can simply download/install the vSphere Client to your W7 laptop, if you haven't already, by going to http://IPofESXiHost. Once installed, log into your host. Rt-click on the datastore your VM is on and select 'Browse Datastore'. You can then click the 'upload' toolbar icon to browse to the location of the ISO on your Win7 workstation to upload the ISO.
