Hello,

Have you enough space disk to install Windows 7?

You might know all Linux OS use a different file system called etx or etx4.

So if you use all your disk for Linux Mint, it is impossible to re-install Windows 7.

And if you want to do a dual boot (Windows - Linux Mint), you must format and partition your disk then install windows 7 in a partition first and linux mint after.

Regards!
