Easy when you follow the tutorial given.
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....
