Some Windows 7 installation media cannot boot in UEFI mode.

 

Try powering on the notebook by pressing the Assist button.

Go into the BIOS (F2 from the Assist menu).

 

Navigate to the Boot tab in the BIOS with the arrow keys and change the Boot Mode from UEFI to Legacy.  That should allow you to boot to the Windows 7 media.

 

This article will outline the steps above with some screenshots to help.
