Did you follow Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7?

If that doesn't help report back settings in BIOS setup for CSM, Legacy BIOS, UEFI, EFI and BIOS Boot order. Pictures can help.

What solves your problem?

I asked for pictures of specific BIOS settings to proceed.

That error often means a bad installer. Where did you get the disk? How was it burned? Refer to Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7 if you need a new ISO and how to burn to DVD or flash stick.

No product key? How do you expect to validate the install? Did you just download Windows 7 from the web? Or get the disk from a friend?
