Didn't understand if the problem is with Win 10 installation or with an attempt to reinstall Win 7.
It can be that you have a HDD failure so you can't boot. Do you have your data backed up?

Please edit your profile and add ALL hardware information.

So you want to reinstall 7 ?

What happens if you have the usb installer in and you keep tapping the boot menu key (usually F8) does it bring up the boot menu ?

Can you get into the bios ? Set it to defaults (F5) then save and exit (F10) and try again.
