You should enable either UEFI support or Legacy support not both. If you installed windows 7 with UEFI/GPT you need to do the same with Ubuntu. If you installed it using MBR you need to do the same with Ubuntu. The error you are reporting is a windows error meaning you haven't correctly installed the windows bootloader. Have you tried installing Ubuntu yet?

PAY ATTENTION:

You have been told SEVERAL TIMES NOW that you can just load Linux, and delete Windows if you want to. Put in the Linux installation media, follow the instructions, and format your whole drive. Done. And AGAIN: if you want to dual-boot (which you said you DID), you need to RELOAD WINDOWS TOTALLY. To spoon-feed you the answer:
  • Open your CD/DVD drive
  • Put in the Windows disc
  • Close the drive
  • Boot computer from Windows installation disc
  • FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS and load Windows
  • Take out the Windows disc when you're done
  • Reboot
  • Log into Windows
Ok??? That is how you load Windows...doesn't get more plain than that. There are no magic 'drivers', nothing to do with BIOS, UEFI, Linux, or anything else...this has been told to you VERY plainly SEVERAL TIMES now. Either do it, or delete Windows totally and load Linux...not much else we can help you with until you either do one of those two things.

Opening more threads asking for help, then not taking any of it is pointless; not acknowledging what's been told to you is rude, and makes everyone here feel like they're wasting their time talking to you.

As far as windows is concerned you can reset to factory specs as there should be a recovery partition.
Also there are some linux cd's that can boot in uefi mode. ubuntu & fedora etc.
