Failed to install windows 7

Hello, I have a Lenovo ideapad Z460 came with windows 7 home basic native system, I'm trying to format the notebook to windows 7 professional, however, when I start the installation when you select the disk for installation, no disc drive is listed. I'm doing the installation via a thumb drive. I've done trying to download the driver storage (http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/br/pt/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad... but when trying to select the driver, I get the answer that we found no compatible driver. Please, I need help installing this windows.

PS: already formatted the disk using diskpart utility, the disk is without any data.

Thank you all.

Welcome andrade

Could you try to download a new copy of Windows 7 Image, and recopy it into your thumbdrive with Microsoft Windows 7 USB / DVD Tool to see if it works?

Just throwing this out there but have you ensure the USB boot option is okay in the BIOS, also have you disabled Secure Boot? Would also best to set boot to Legacy and UEFI to see if that resolves the issue.
