What happened after each of these?
If you're trying to bypass UEFI then it still has UEFI device listed second in boot priority which needs to be changed. Is that the HDD? Look for another HDD choice which isn't UEFI.
I see Optical Drive choice there on menu. What happens when you select it? Is there a DVD drive to set first?
Same for HDD is there a HDD to set second?
If no DVD drive set non-UEFI HDD first, try booting DVD drive from Boot Menu key at boot.
Make sure Secure Boot is turned off.
Try booting the HD Diagnostic CD or Partition Wizard CD which will self-boot to test and then Quick Wipe HD. This should make Windows 7 DVD boot itself too. Make sure Secure Boot is disabled and (non-UEFI) HDD set first.
Are there other settings we've not seen? Some users have found strangely named settings that actually end up disabling UEFI, if not named Legacy BIOS.
