The newer isos work fine.  The fact that there was a key problem SOUNDS
like your Firmware has an issue with our secureboot key.  Sometimes a
firmware update fixes bad CA certs from the OEM.

We just released 7.1511 (based on RHEL 7.2 Sources) .. I extensively
tested the secureboot/uefi installs on 3 separate machines from 3
manufacturers (Dell, HP, Lenovo).

Download either of these ISOs (whichever one you want to use .. they all
work when doing dd to copy to a usb key and they all do secure boot):


(Pick a mirror close to you)

You want one of the ISOs listed here:


If you want to know what each ISO does, read this:


I would recommend either DVD, LiveGNOME if you want to install
everything from an ISO .. OR .. Minimal if you understand how to use
'yum group list' and 'yum group install'.
