The steps to disable UEFI are in Post #23. Did you miss them?

I read them, but I dont know computers like you guys seem to. I am not used to modify things in the BIOS and yet I dont even know what EFI boots are. The steps are talking about changing EFI settings yet mine only had UEFI options and I tried it to see if anything would happen.

You just said you disabled UEFI which is either done by enabling Legacy BIOS or Compatibilty Support Mode. Which was it?

I went in the Boot menu, clicked on the UEFI disk and then I saw "disable" so I clicked it.

K. I retried the whole thing. Again, it froze at "Installing Updates" step. I give it 1 hour if it didnt move I'll have to try something else.

I read that installing W7 64x with too much RAM can be problematic and is recommended to run with 2gb of RAM. My computer uses 2x8gb BUT I have some 2gb RAM somewhere in the house. Should I try to take out my 16gb RAM and put 1 of my 2gb? Or simply try with 8gb or literally forget this idea because it wont change anything?

I went and removed my 2x8gb and tried to put my old 2gb RAM. But it doesnt fit in the slot. I guess it's too old. So I am trying again with 8gb this time.
