    Most Windows 7 systems are booting with BIOS even if hardware is newer and can boot with UEFI.

    Windows only installs to boot with UEFI on gpt partitioned drives and one of first partitions with be an efi partition. With BIOS boot you have a 100MB (hidden) Boot partition and your main isntall. Most Windows 7 systems also use all 4 primary partitions, which is another issue.

    Post this from terminal in Live installer:
    sudo parted -l

    With 4GB of RAM and a newer computer you will want the 64 bit version.
    Also instructions for DVD or USB flash drive
    Write image or burn image not copy ISO as one large file to flash or DVD.
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:
