Yikes no disk drive okay well means you'll need flash drive install media :/
Wait for a expert before doing this,
But if you create install media to flash drive win-7 64 bit " a bit tough now Microsoft removed all win-7 iso downloads"

You might be able to create flash media for Linux to retrieve your personal files first !!!!

Then install Linux along side the existing win-7 Linux may fix the booting issues and allow booting to 7 again,

Ok, I have a flash drive with win7 64bit home premium iso.
I also have an external hard disk with a backup of all my stuff
that I made before the computer went crazy.
I even have another drive with windows recovery tool.
Now, as for the flash drive and iso, I've tried to boot from
it by setting the boot order to use the flash drive, but when I do it
gives an error message saying " Reboot and Select proper
Boot device or insert boot media in selected device and press a key".
Like I said, I feel like I've tried everything.

Sounds like the usb install media was not properly done
How exactly did you create the bootable flash media with the iso ?

Okay, I'm glad you asked because while looking for the thread I followed I found this one How to install Windows 7 in UEFI Mode with a USB , which is different than the one I followed. Difference being "8+ gig drive".
Could that be the problem? The one I used is only 4gigs.

Not at this dead end point
I'd make sure secure boot is disabled too.

I'm surprised no one has chimed in I'll ask for some assistance for you too

Thanks for all your help! By the way, do you have this Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI
For windows 7? The one you posted was for win8. Also, I can't find an option for secure boot, I see
UEFI Boot and boot priorities but no secure boot...
