    cracker try this put you windows 7 cd/dvd in reboot open bios select boot tab look for 1 login select uefi cd/dvd in cd/dvd drive put to first position on boot sequence press f10 or whatever and then select yes to save it should then boot into win 7 setup when it gets to disk partitions select disk 0 delete all partitions any other partitions just delete to get rid of ubuntu win8 whatever you have.now the burning question is your hard drive formatted to gpt if not after deleting partitions do so otherwise uefi wont work for you give that a shot see how you go

    select uefi cd/dvd in cd/dvd drive
    I don't get uefi cd/dvd ,I just get vd/dvd .I change from uefi to legacy, and when I boot to win7 it will not install on any partition new or old ,and cant delete any of the partitions ,hdd is GPT ,that my issue I guess ,think I have to use windows diskpart to delete them .maybe

    I created a uefi usb using the rufus program suggested here ,but it still will not install win7, my brain is taxed lol

    Windows 8, Windows 7


    I am running Win 7 on the laptop already, but in legacy, and with linux as a dual boot. Yes the BIOS supports uefi, which s why I tried switching it on and see if the installation would start.
    The same has happened on my new ASUS, with win 8, where I wanted to remove it and install win 7.
    Since I had no luck, I have used win 8 and found that win 8.1 is quite nice and fast, but I have of course switched off most of the so called 'Modern' interface. Since I have a Win 7 license for the old one I wanted to use UEFI instead of legacy.

    I have tried these tutorials, but it is nothing else than what I am used to when booting from a usb. This still gives me the same
    error. Are there other suggestions, if removing linux won't work?
