Boot mode is UEFI only; it only shows the devices which allow UEFI. There is only one option for the DVD drive.

Sounds like you have a problem with your Windows 7 x64 DVD, or DVD Drive.

There was a recovery partition that was on my computer. I decided to delete the partition and now it's allowing me to carry on with my installation. I'll update when the installation has finished.

Thank you for spending your time to try and help me. I am very grateful.

Hi Osevend, I have the same problem like you. You keep your W8 on mashine and add W7?

When you delete recovery partition, how much partition left on your PC? And how you install it, as UEFI or legacy mode?
