I upgraded my Lenovo u430p to a 500gb SSD and I am trying to boot with a windows pro 7.iso file on a USB but I am having no luck.  I tried using the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool but no luck.  I am getting the following error "EFI Network O for IPv4 boot failed.

I tried going thru a diskpart process using commands including convert gpt but still no luck.

any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Download a copy of image burn... from the ISO create a DVD.. use the DVD for the install.  See if that helps.  Verify the system is set to boot from USB.    

If you wish to preserve the contents/OS of the old drive, download Shadow Protect and make a USB image of the old drive and transfer it to the new SSD.

If your old drive is not bigger than the new one, why not make an image from the old to the new one and simply boot again? If the old drive is bigger, you also could use tools like Partition Magic to shrink the drive to the new size and image it to the SSD (only possible, if there is enough free space). If you are familiar with gparted, there are a _lot_ of things possible!

Boot into the BIOS (press Fn+F2 on power-up) and check if the SSD is detected on the Information Tab.
 
If the SSD is detected, navigate to the Boot Tab and ensure that it's the first boot.
If it still fails, try to disable UEFI and press F10 to save and exit.

Ensure you have secure boot disabled in the BIOS and also set boot options to legacy or both (I've had this issue in the past when attempting to boot from a usb on a lenovo x240)

Have you created the installation USB like it is guided here: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/
Note, for UEFI system the Windows must be 64bit.
The drive must be empty (no partition) before you strta the installation. Secure boot must be disabled.

I do not have a DVD drive.

I have disabled Secure Boot and also set the boot mode to Legacy Support.  The Boot priority = Legacy First.  USB Boot = Enabled.

Under Legacy, the Samsung SSD is listed first followed by Network Boot: Realtek PXE BO1 D00

I formatted the USB drive using the Windows 7 USB/DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL.  

When I boot the machine I get the (attached image) and it just keeps rebooting

Instead of using this Download tool try to create the USB maually through diskpart. Btw, I have had a case where one USB stick was rejected and the other one worked perfectly. Have you tried it with another USB stick?
