    You will need to have the win7 dvd in the dvd drive when you reboot, else it will just try to boot from the HD.

    1) Downgrade to Windows 7.
    Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7
    Warning you must have the UEFI/BIOS firmware setting in Step Three set.

    2) If Using a USB Pen drive on a PC with a UEFI BIOS.
    USB Pen drive need to be formatted to FAT32 as in
    UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
    Take note of Step 11 for Windows 7.
    Also you will need to use a USB 2.0 port, as there are no USB 3.0 drivers in Windows 7.

    1) Disable" SECURE BOOT"

    2) enable "CSM"

    3) Set "Windows Boot Manager" as first boot devive.

    3) Boot Windows 7 x64 DVD in "UEFI mode" from the One Time Boot Menu.
