Good work. Persistence always pays off.

There's almost always a way to get installed since even if the UEFI crapware won't ultimately yield, you can always Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7.

If you highlight the Secure Boot listing itself it should show you a choice to Disable. Sometimes it's located elsewhere on the page nearby or in the BIOS. There is always a way to disable Secure Boot but it may take some detective work.

Otherwise look at the Manual on the PC's Support Downloads webpage to see if it offers clues.
