To review: by Launching CSM it shows in BIOS options your DVD drive and HD independent of UEFI DVD drive and Windows Boot Manager, so that they can be set correctly for MBR install with DVD drive first, HD second?

This will be valuable information for others with your mobo who search with this problem.

In both cases I'm unable to install Windows, a message shows NO Operating system found.
theog, my problem is completely different. As I said already, in UEFI mode, the Windows Install is freezing during DVD boot - as soon as the Windows splash screen is shown so this is *before* and GUI is started. Yes, I unplugged all peripherals and it made no difference. I *cannot* follow the Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7 simply because I can't even initiate the Install, I don't even get to the GUI.

As stated earlier, I believe the problem is with an internal splash screen for my motherboard. I did a clean Windows 8 UEFI install and when Windows 8 was launching, instead of seeing the new Windows (the flat one) splash screen, I was seeing the ASUS one all the way to the desktop! So the system must have some sort of "hard coded" functionality to detect when a Windows is loading and if so, it forces its own logo, replacing the original Windows one. Windows 8 probably is the only one that can process this signal from the UEFI. Since Windows 7 is a "Windows", *probably* while Windows 7 DVD is loading at the logo, the system tries to replace the logo but if Windows 7 is not coded to process the signal, it hangs at the logo. This is my theory....

Thank you so much! I've been trying to downgrade an F75a for the past 3 hours. Searching the internet was practically futile. Considering that the DVD drive would show up under SATA Devices, but wasn't available as a boot option I was just about to throw this thing against the wall. As I type this I've got Windows 7 installing smoothly. You're a life saver.

rwx could not do it in uEFI mode.

How to in uEFI:
Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7

By enable Legacy BIOS, any BIOS update will return the BIOS back to uEFI mode.

Actually, my issue has been resolved as stated on the top of this thread

**** This issue has been resolved ****
**** Look at Page 4, posts 4 and 5 ****
**** You need to enable Legacy MBR by Enabling Launch CSM in the EFI Setup ****

By the way moparnut06, you are very welcome and I am glad you found a solution in this thread (although most likely for a different issue). I am amazed you registered just to say thank you
