I asked you what the exact choices are for CSM. Is there a setting for "Both?" You would use this if you want to mix GPT and MBR disks. Otherwise use UEFI only to boot to UEFI and use only GPT disks, or Legacy choices if you want to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7

What installation medium are you using, DVD or flash stick? If flash stick use Rufus in Option One of UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows or you'lll need to manually do the file edit in the other options.
O Thanks, the choices were
launch pxe oprom policy
launch storage oprom policy
launch video oprom policy

and and i can choose

1. Uefi only
2. Legacy only
3. both close

Sorry I dont understand, the load default button just reset all changes to default , doesnt help me UEFI boot
By using Load UEFI Defaults, you are in UEFI mode.

By DISABLING Secure Boot Windows 7 x64 DVD can boot & install Windows.
Ok thanks, that means I should
1. Enable CSM
2. Close Secure boot
3. Load UEFI default ?
I tried them but didnt tried them all at the same time

Have you checked your motherboard manual for steps necessary to enter UEFI?

YOu have been able to get into BIOS setup by pressing your DEL key, correct?

You will definitely need to disable Secure BOot as it is only for Windows 8.

I've asked you repeatedly what settings you see in BIOS setup for CSM or Legacy BIOS. To see the choices click on each of them, or whatever your BIOS instructions tell you to do to expand the choices to choose a setting.

If you want to install in UEFI then you would NOT enable CSM or Legacy. But what other settings choices do those options give you?

Once you disable CSM or Legacy if they are enabled, boot the Win7 installer using the BIOS Boot menu key to trigger UEFI DVD drive or UEFI flash stick boot. Are those options given when you have the Win7 64 bit DVD in the drive, or have formatted the flash stick installer using Option One in UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows?

Please do not ignore any of my questions again if you want further help. I am not going to ask a fourth time.

Yup when i press "esc" , i go to a page that it said i can boot by 2 options, which are

p0 harddisk
p5 dvd rom

Sorry I am idiot in computer, when you talk about bios set up, how can i get into it?

I press "F2" then i got into a menu like this
Main Screen - Asrock H81M-GL M?nual [Page 44]

I click the boot tab i get into page like this
Boot Screen - Asrock H81M-GL M?nual [Page 69]

in the csm options , i can choose enable or diable it
under the csm options there are 3 options
launch pxe oprom
launch video oprom
launch storage oprom
and i can choose "uefi only" "legacy only" or "both disable" of each of them

I didnt have any usb flash drive, i use only window7 dvd drive, sorry I am really poor in computer knowledge , so when you ask me some question, I may not be answering properly, appreciated your patientness and many thanks

Post back screenshots of your BIOS Advanced and Boot tabs. Any obvious UEFI, CSM or Legacy BIOS settings should be expanded by clicking on them (or whatever the BIOS help tells you to do to expand them) so we can see the choices. If CMS or Legacy are easy to find then Disable them. Disable Secure Boot if this is a Win8 PC.

Did you read the UEFI tutorial on the Main page of your BIOS?

Have you tried formatting your destination drive GPT before installation?
