This computer is new so I dont expect to be a hardware issue. I also tried to install windows 10 and it succeeded. Any help?

[1] What did you use for the installation media [DVD or USB]?
[2] Was it a downloaded ISO that you converted to one of the above?
[3] If it was downloaded, where was it downloaded from?
[4] Did you delete ALL the partitions during installation to leave a single partition of unallocated space?
[5] Did you remove any attached USB's or external HDD's during installation?

Number [5] could cause the boot manager being installed onto a different drive rather than the Win 7 OS drive!

As it succeed with win 10, it's probably a BIOS setting (like Secure boot and or / fast boot enabled)
We need to know ALL your computer specs.

I solved it. I just have to boot it and install it all in legacy mode.

You can probably install as UEFI-GPT with the proper BIOS settings.
