Really need to post more than six words.  This is not a search engine, it is a forum.  For the short answer, you would need the Windows 7 SP1 DVD, you would also have to turn of Secure boot, UEFI in the bios of the machine, before Windows 7 will even install.

 

You would also have to make sure that you have the drivers for your machine available on a USB stick, in case Windows 7 does not find the system drivers when it loads.

Was the system purchased with Windows 8 on it?

Go into the Bios, disable UEFI & Secure Boot, set to boot on CD-Rom/DVD, then boot up Windows 7 DVD and follow the install instructions.

I see this on other forums.  For some reason, some people tend to think these are Search Engines, not Peer Forums.  It is like going up to someone and stating "When did the Bears last win the Superbowl?" and then walk away, leaving the OP scratching their head.
