Trying to install win7 on new laptop, error 0xc0000359

I just bought brand new laptop that has free dos as os. Since it doesn't have cd/dvd-rom, i made bootable usb with 64bit windows 7, using wintoflash software. I selected my usb device in bios (it says: UEFI: JetFlash etc) And then it starts loading files (black screen, white % bar on bottom) when it finishes loading, this message pops up
What am I doing wrong?

PS it was formated using FAT32

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I'd use option 2 here to create the installation media
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Thank you for welcoming me!

And I tried doing that. But it's like my USB wasn't even plugged. It skipped loading windows files completely, and just opened free dos instead.

Hi,
Have you created a partition to install windows on ?
If so this partition would need to be formatted as ntfs or unallocated

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Otherwise to get to the boot menu use F8 on first start up to select the flash drive
The flash drive could be bad :/

I don't even get to the patition creation part. It cancels before that.
And I tried it with 2 different USB flash drives, still didn't work.
