Thank you Toms Guide for registration. Can anyone help me on how to change this pc's BIOS? I am led to believe that to install win 7 FROM win10 , the BIOS has to be legacy. I have successfully disabled secure boot. but thats it, so i am at my wits end, can someone please help me?
 
You have a Windows 10 or Windows 7 install media ?

Usually this laptop was delivered with windows 8. But should be able to just install win10. Run the Microsoft windows media creation tool and boot from it.

Or do you really wanna install Windows 7?
Then you will have to update your BIOS to get the legacy support setting inside BIOS:

Would get the latest version 2.14 and flash it
Would use the flash utility like this:
