Is the Windows 7 disk the one that was originally used on your computer?

Do you have the Motherboard driver disk that came in the Motherboard box?

 

Please do the following.

With the computer on.

> Put the Windows disk in the DVD Drive and close the tray.

> restart the computer by pressing the Reset Button on the case. 

> As soon as the computer restarts, keep tapping the F11 key.

 

What is displayed?

> Eject the disk and restart the computer.

Did windows install?

To use the EFI interface, the disk must have all partitions removed so the drive shows as "Unallocated space", then when you choose UEFI, the drive is partitioned using the GPT partitions table and the ( C ) partition is formatted NTFS.

 

Your welcome. :thumbsup:

Sorry for the delay.   I hope this is still useful to you.

I asked for the model of your MB as a check as some do not, or only partially support EFI mode.

 

Using Diskpart from a W7 installation CD to clean a used SSD/HDD.   Wipes the drive of Data makes it Unallocated Space.   For safety, I advise disconnecting all other SSD/HDD except for the OS installation one to prevent accidentally wiping the wrong drive. 

 

Place the CD in the Optical drive and restart the computer.

At the first input screen. Choose your language. > your region. > accept the keyboard input.

 

Please follow the instructions on the images below.
