How Install Windows 7 x64 in UEFI from Legacy Win10,Ubuntu.

I made this thread asking for your help.
Actually i have on my computer (orginally windows 10 in uefi when i bought) but now installed Kubuntu 15.4 OS and Windows 10 OS x64 in Legacy Mode,
on HDD 2TB (MBR).
I drop Grub bootmanager, writing in windows 10 recovery mode console commands
" bootrec.exe /fixmbr " and " bootrec.exe /fixboot "
so when i turn on my PC, only Windows 10 shows up.
(Its good because now i can safety delete Kubuntu without problems with booting).

Now im asking you for help, its question.
How should i install windows 7 x64 in UEFI Mode step by step?
I have right now Bootable USB with Windows 7 x64 type MBR (UEFI and Legacy bootable) FAT32.

I can of course ask from shop for key (received system at bought computer)but i can't contact them,
tried everything so in my opinion install again windows 7 x64 ultimate and update to windows 10 its good idea, only left problem with convert bios from Legacy to UEFI
