Default mental ray in maya 7.0

hi guys i'm still new here.
i just want to ask about how to change the render setting in maya 7.0 so that it would use mental ray for rendering?
i found the menu "render using", but there is no mental ray there. there were maya software, hardware and ventor (if im not mistaken).
thank you for the help
have a good day.

It looks like Mental Ray is not loaded, this is usual for Maya and only requires you to load it via Windows > Plug-In Manager

Look for mayatomr.mll in to list and click autoload and then load. Close the Plug-In Manager and you will now be able to render with Mental Ray.
