Windows 7: Just wondering

I wouldn't worry about the error if you've disabled Secure Boot. Remember to Save the setting before exiting or it won't be remembered.

Go ahead and install Win7 so we can see if you need any adjustments, i.e. Turn off Fast boot to use BIOS Boot Menu so that Windows Boot Manager can be set first to boot, or Launch CSM as is sometimes needed to install Win7 even with UEFI.

OK then Launch CSM in BIOS setup.

Is this a retail DVD or did you burn it?

Did you select UEFI DVD choice? Try the BIOS Boot menu to be sure you can see what you're choosing. You may need to turn off Fast Boot to access it, normally via F8 or F12 key on Asus'.

Sounds good. Did it show the SSD as Unallocated space?

Create your partition(s), highlight the one for Win7 and click Next.

No mate I didn't see anything like that and right now it is downloading all those updates but I will as soon as I get chance.

I was asking what you saw at this step of install:



Did it say Unallocated space like it shows there? Did you make your partitions with the Drive Options or just click Next?

It sounds like it is installing or has already finished, since you don't specify what Updates its doing. If it's succeeding then there's no reason to change anything.

Yes that is it sorry wasn't quite sure it is what you meant as I have only seen unallocated partitions in disk management - except fort hat screen of course.


No I just let it go Greg and the updates are still going 22 to go and strange thing is it went from IE8 to 11 which I thought or was under the impression it had to go through the versions one by one? But no matter almost finished just the apps and security to go.

But heck it is quick compared to what the 8.1 on that spinner was running and I have a new fast Samsung SSD coming this week (an 850 Pro) and maybe I will clone this to that for even more speed

Just wondering.
How do you get these "power user" and "skilled" etc buttons under your name? Does not seem to be only for the higher posters, or ones with more rep since I've seen some on folks with less then 60 posts, I was just curious what the requirements were.
