disable secure boot in the BIOS and you should be able to install and run Win7

If you have Windows 7 DVD and the Key you can manually install it or if your computer came with the downgrade DVD you can use that.

That model had Win 7 drivers, will run it with no problems, you just need to buy a Win 7 disk with a license key.
