Windows 7: Asus N76 UEFI - W7 64 Install Hangs on Logo (DVD UEFI Boot)

I am sorry also if I got hotheaded. As for me I did manage to get Win 7 to boot UEFI and all I did was delete my data partition then booted the Win 7 dvd and it let me boot UEFI. It may be all for nothing cause the WLan drivers listed on the Asus web site dont match. The Win 8 driver is the right one according to device manager and I can't find the driver anywhere on the net so it kinda looks like I'm stuck with Win 8. *Puke*

Did you run Updates repeatedly with reboots to intsall all Important and Optional Updates which will deliver most drivers not in the installer? First enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3). This is how drivers are handled in the first driver-complete OS.

First I had to get some kind of network connectivity working. My LAN driver installed OK amd now I'm running Windows Update to see if it can resolve some of my driver issues for me. I'll keep you posted. Did you have unallocated space on your drive when you tried to do the UEFI Boot?

I recently installed a dual boot of 7 after shrinking 8 on a factory preinstall I wanted to sample 7 in. It was all in UEFI. So I know it can have other partitions and unallocated space I created into a partition during install.

Win8 drives should work with Windows 7, but more importantly Windows 7 should deliver almost all of its own drivers with only rare exceptions.

Read over Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which summarizes what works best based on tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here. Granted, however, most of them were MBR installs.

No problems Shane, all good, we understand each other. Keep us posted with how you go. I am sure other people will have similar issues.

With me, I run in full BIOS mode.

When I have more time, I will respond to your questions Greg. I have not forgotten. I think I might have to take a video of my laptop's UEFI boot-up process from the point I insert the CD so you can see what's going on.

Still I am grateful for being able to boot using legacy BIOS as a lot of Linux distros are MBR based. I am willing to wait additional 5 seconds of boot time (BIOS based) in order to gain full compatibility.

Many users are satisfied choosing to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 often after spending hours and days trying to install in UEFI mode. OEM's provide little support or documentation on new UEFI BIOS.

As of this moment I have a working base install of Win 7 Pro on my laptop with all known device drivers accounted for. Thanks to all those who assisted me along the way. Sorry for being short tempered with a few of you along the way. I was fixed on solving the issue of why I could not boot using UEFI because I wanted to understand that side of it as well as I understand CSM and MBR. I wanted a complete picture of both sides before moving forward with the install. I just don't like unanswered questions. Now I have at least a basic understanding of UEFI and GPT. Hope that makes sense. Again, thanks guys I appreciate the assist.

Well, I am one of those users as you have already seen Full support for everything using MBR. Same as if it was a normal BIOS based laptop.

However, I still need come to the bottom of my issue to find out why I experience the UEFI issue with my laptop. At this point of time, I have only avoided the problem, not solved.

As you have already reset CSM from UEFI to Legacy, reset back to UEFI.(in some BIOS's you set CSM to UEFI & Legacy)

Downgraded 195 PC's last week from Windows 8x64 UEFI Pre-installed to Windows 7x64 UEFI with NO problems.

@rwx I would like to try and help you solve your UEFI Boot issue since you've been so patient with me. What version of Win 7 are you attempting to install? Can you provide a list of the files present on your DVD, specifically the files related to boot. They are found on the root and in the EFI folder also found on the root.
