Windows 7 installer stuck at "Setup is starting"

Hello. I have a problem with my friend's laptop: an Acer E5-572G-58U0. I want to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 from a USB stick. I choose the language, time and currecy and the keyboard language. I press "next" then "Instal now" and ... here is my problem. It stucks at "Setup is starting". I waited all the night but in the morning it was the same.

I know probabily there was many other threads but i didn't find anything useful there.

Witch OS came on the Laptop? Win 8?
On BIOS, did you enabled CSM (Compatible System Mode)?

It's very difficult to guide you as Acer doesn't have any manual related to BIOS settings and as I don't have your laptop to look at, it's impossible to say where to look.

On BIOS look for Windows 8 / 10 and select Other
Enable CSM (Compatible System Mode)

Yes you can. Take the photos from BIOS pages and then upload them by selecting Manage Attachments (below where you reply to post)

Good. On Boot tab, first option (Boot Mode) select UEFI.
- Boot your Win 7 installation on UEFI mode (important) , go to install, custom, advanced, delete all partitions, create a new one (Win will create 3 partitions) and proceed.
