You will need to enter BIOS setup. press f2 at power up.
Disable secure boot
change boot from UEFI to CSM
There should be a section "Choosing OS" change to windows 7
save and restart
install windows

Thanks for your reply but there is no option for choosing OS. I can't even change from UEFI to CSM, CSM is only an option to enable or disable.
I have CSM on Enabled and Secure Boot on Disabled .
There are PICS of my BIOS. As you can see there is no "Choose OS" option sadly.

Are you seeing EUFI choices when attempting to boot the Win7 installation media via the BIOS Boot menu? If not try moving CSM back to Disabled to see if yours is the rare BIOS which doesn't require CSM to install Win7 to UEFI. For example, I was able to shrink Windows 8 and install Win7 as a dual boot under UEFI on an Asus laptop but needed CSM set to disabled.
