I thought it was possible because they mention both DVD and USB.

....unless using 'retail' DVD differs from a DVD burned from the ISO ..!
Need an answer from seven guru 😄

Yes you can use the download tool to burn the DVD. You only need the special Rufus tool to format UEFI flash stick

That's what I suggest:

Burn DVD
Keep UEFI boot mode
Install from DVD and see if it works

Are you using a USB2 port to try to boot the installation stick? There are no USB3 drivers in the Win7 installation media. A USB3 port is usually blue inside.

As that is a WIndows 8 netbook, where did you get Win7? How do you plan to activate it?

If you already own a WIn7 license, for what version is it? How much RAM does the netbook have as you might want to install 32 bit if 3gb RAM or less, in which case you'd disable UEFI.
