Getting red strip on top of screen while trying to install windows 7

Hi guys,
if anyone can help it would be appreciated as Iíve done everything I can think of but I canít seem to install windows 7 after having windows 10, my computer originally came with windows 8 preinstalled when I got it and Iíve been pulling my hair out trying to get this to work lol, any suggestions as to what I should do next?

Thanks

Nick

P.s Iíve attached some pics of my bios in case thereís something I should be choosing but havenít, plus thereís a pic of what happened when I tried to install windows 7 in safe mode.

You have to set BIOS properly.
Win 10 uses secure boot that is incompatible with win 7.
On BIOS, disable secure boot and fast boot (fast boot can be enabled after installation).
Boot Win 7 as UEFI and install on the partition you have created.

Installing Windows 7 on UEFI based computer

If you still have issues, give @Megahertz07 a shout.

Hi thanks for your reply, I have actually disabled secure boot, but can’t find fast boot to disable it, please see bios pictures attached to my original post, plus how do I boot windows 7 as UEFI? Would changing my partitions from gpt to mbr work?

Thanks

Thoroughly read the info on the page I hyperlinked?
GPT will work no need for MBR. My desktop is Win 7 Home Premium, UEFI GPT partitioning.
I don't believe fast boot is available below Win 7 Ultimate, not sure, but from what I've read it, appears to have been introduced in Win7 Ultimate.
