Windows 7: I can't install Windows 7

I can't install Windows 7

Hello Guys!
This is my first post on this forum.
I bought a new laptop and I need to install my CAD software for interior design.
After installation it seems that the software is not fully functional
I contact software support and they said I need to install it on Windows 7.
My Clevo N150RD came with preinstalled Win 10 Home.
I have a full retail version of Windows 7 two disc 64 & 32 bit.
I tried to installed it with no sucess.
When system try to boot, it freeze on black screen with no complete Windows logo. I also attached my screen.
I've contacted the laptop retailer (scan UK) and the said that this laptop is not compatible with Win 7 due to drivers.
After my research I found that the Sager (which is Clevo) has drivers for my computer for Windows 7.
I presume that the issue here will be drivers but I'm not a pro with this.
Could you help please!
Thanks.

Did you turn on legacy/CSM/BIOS mode?
If you didn't, windows 7 won't work.

If you want to know how to turn it on, just search online, there will be many tutorials to help you do it.

When it does that press the escape button, then look around the eufi settings until you find legacy/csm mode or something like that, then enable it.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
You need to do a little preparation in win-10 before you'll be able to possibly install 7
In your bios disable Fast or quick startup in the boot section I believe = this might help

But ultimately you need to do it in win-10 too probably

Go to uefi settings and show what is there.
