    You will need to turn off secure boot in the bios.

    I deleted. But I installed 2 Windows on SSD.
    First, I installed Windows 7 on 1 partition. Then I created another partition to install Windows 8. (UEFI system)

    Glad that worked. I had many many issues when dual booting Win7 and Win8, the problems all went away when I reloaded Win8 as the only OS on the SSD.
