Windows 7: Installing windows 7 on windows 10 laptop stuck

Installing windows 7 on windows 10 laptop stuck

Yesterday I got a laptop from a friend who wanted to have windows 7 instead of then on his laptop. I tried installing it, but every time I startup the laptop it gets stuck st the starting windows screen. I got the windows 7 disc from that friend too and it is probably not a bootable disc, because it doesn’t ask to startup from the disc. Is there any way to get this fixed? If you need any specs from the laptop then I’ll post them in the afternoon

You need to know if the disk is bootable the other problem is 10 will be booting so fast it won't catch it you need to set boot DVD in the BIOS then restart windows which slows boot down

You didn't give us the hardware specs of the new computer so it is hard to us to give specific help.
- On BIOS you must disable Secure Boot.
- Is the Win 7 installation disk a DVD or a USB flash?
- During POST, launch the boot menu. It will give a option to boot win 10 and two options to boot the win 7 installation drive: Legacy and UEFI. Choose UEFI, go to install - advanced and delete all partitions - create new and proceed.

I am not sure if the DVD is bootable. I am afraid that it is not the case, but the files on the DVD look like this:

and I can get into the BIOS. I got no issues with that.

I think the DVD disk is boot able.
- Did you do a HDD image so you can recover if something go wrong?
- Did you disabled secure boot on BIOS? Also disable fast boot.

What you want to do, single boot (win 7) or double boot (win 10 and win 7)?

I haven't done an HDD image, because the laptop is as good as empty.
I did disable secure boot and I now tried disabling fast boot.
I found out that I can boot it from the DVD in the save settings under a setting with EUFI in it.
but now when I try to start it from the DVD it loads all the windows files and then the windows 7 loading screen appears, but then it get's stuck like half a second before the 4 colored balls should collide and from the logo. I can still boot into windows 10 and it said this windows version could not be installed and it recovered the old windows version(windows 10), check the website to download the upgrade advisor.
Btw I want to make a single boot (win 7)
