Cant revert to Win7 from 10 on my tablet

Hello, I have Lenovo 20C1001DUS and I recently updated it to Windows 10 and I hate it so I want to install Windows 7 OS so I went out and bought a CD. I started doing some reading to get the OS I have to put on a USB so I found a program that moves the OS to the USB which was easy but I cant but the next step is for my tablet to boot from the USB and I cant figure out how to get it to do that because I don't know how to get into the BIOS. I have a usb keyboard if that would help.... Ideas? Get me out of this 10

Well a friend of mine downloaded and install Windows 10 on his Windows 7 computer from the nagging update link. He said there is an uninstall in Programs and Features in View Installed Updates if he didn't like it.

Holding the power and volume up gets me in the same menu/bios i drag my USB HDD to the top and save it. Now with my USB stick in it doesn't show any names nor does it show names for my HD and SD card and I think if i were on a regular pc in more familiar bios it would show that? Anyway, I save and restart and windows 10 boots up every time. I don't get it

Win-10 has a startup as 0 seconds so it is tough to get into bios or in a dual boot setup with the settings set to 0 seconds so turn off fast startup,

Do you have the secure boot option in your bios ?
If you do and it's enabled, try disabling it and see if that helps.
