I am sorry Shane, this part sounded like you were facing the same issue as me:

Quote:
I have the same issue. Win 7 boot loader appears then just stops. Win 7 is supposed to be UEFI capable. I'm stuck. All I know is I want Win 8 gone. Any help you can offer is appreciated.
Ok, back to the real problem now. If the Setup insists on MBR then: Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk

I don't see any other way.

@rwx no my issue is the same issue as the one who started this post "Can't do a UEFI Boot of Win 7. Boot Loader loads then just stops never even gets into setup"

He says he wants to try UEFI, but has never confirmed he has a UEFI BIOS, whether Win8 came preinstalled (also requiring disabling Secure Boot), or whether he's following the steps to install to UEFI which he says he doesn't need.

i would not be in this thread if my situation was not exactly identical. Yes have Win 8 Yes have UEFI capable firmware. Yes have disabled secure boot and so on and so on. Even have an Asus just like the person who started this thread any more obvious questions you'd like me to waste time answering?

Hi Shane, I am the one that started the thread but I never resolved that problem. I never successfully installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode. The moment the Windows logo appears, the animation of the logo freezes. I don't know if the problem we are facing is shared among other laptop models. I just wanted Windows 7 on my PC one way or the other (UEFI or BIOS) and since I had enough failures with UEFI, I was lucky enough to find a way to enable legacy BIOS which worked as expected. My disk is MBR.

@rwx Yes same with me I hate Win 8 and just want it gone. They are not giving us a choice. All the available laptops are Win 8 so I bought it figuring it would be fairly straightforward to downgrade, wrong. I chose Asus cause they had the Win 7 drivers available. I think I'm just gonna have to wipe the hard drive and do MBR. It's too bad cause Asus was even smart enough to partition my hard drive for me so I got C OS and D Data which is something I do to all my machines by default. Was surprised to see it had already been done for me.

Once I enabled Legacy BIOS, my UEFI laptop behaves exactly as my BIOS based one but it would be good to know if someone actually finds a way with UEFI. I have a feeling the UEFI setup utility will need updating but could be wrong. I personally wouldn't do it because with Legacy BIOS, it just works the way I wanted it.

By the way, if your laptop is exactly the same model as mine, it probably came with 5400RMP HD.

I bought a new HD because the original was too slow. With the old HD, my new laptop ran slower than the old one because of the HD and my old one had a 7200RMP HD.

I have Asus R704A-RH51. Not worried so fair about the hard drive. My laptop isn't my primary computer. I prefer a desktop to a laptop. The laptop is for when I don't wanna be stuck in my room and wanna watch TV or something while I'm on the computer. But yeah 5400 RPM is noticibly slow.

rwx, what are your exact settings for Legacy BIOS and Compatibility Support Module? Provide camera snaps as screenshots if possible.

Did you reset BIOS to defaults before making sure both of those settings are disabled? Does the UEFI DVD choice then appear in BIOS Boot Priority listings? Can we see a screenshot of those too?

If not did you try flash stick method to see if it will appear in the boot list, either in BIOS setup itself or using the one-time BIOS Boot menu key? UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

Because you have been nice and patient I will work with you to resolve this as best possible. Did you originally decide to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7?

I think I'm just gonna convert the drive to MBR and do a BIOS install and persue this UEFI stuff as a project. I have the software from MS to recreate my Win 7 DVD and some pretty good instructions so we'll just see what happens. I have to clone my drive first before I do the install. Just a CMA messure. I have downloaded the drivers. If I solve the boot problem I will let you know. My settings are Secure Boot Disabled Fast Boot Disabled and CMS Disabled.
