Can't Seem to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Properly

Hello,I've Just purchased a new Laptop (Asus X555LA) and I'm trying to install Windows.

All was fine and dandy,I go through the installation process (after choosing to boot from a CD,I have a CD copy of Windows),I'm asked to reboot again,I do exactly that and I can't seem to get through the "Starting Windows" screen,I've tried to restart the laptop again without success,I've tried to restart and boot from the HD and I've checked that all of the Bios settings as far as Boot and Security options are correct (and they were).
What do I do?I'm helpless and frustrated.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
What os originally came on the computer win-8 ?
Can you still boot into win-8 ?
You would need to disable fast startup inside win-8 first before attempting to install 7
Go back into bios and Optimize defaults
Then boot into win-8
Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

Then post some images of the bios options you have
Of course secure boot would need to be disabled
One important one is OS Type must not be uefi only if there is not any other options you'd need to follow this tutorial
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with

I'd do that with a completely different hdd or ssd to at least not change the original hdd incase you have issues.

Hmmm... A new ASUS laptop and no pre-installed o/s. Interesting. Not saying it doesn't happen but I think that is a rare thing.

Just had a look at the ASUS support site. That beast is touch screen interface and is supposed to come with Windows 8.1. Of course, they want you to migrate to Windows 10. I'm wondering if the bios will even let you install Windows 7 on it.

I had the option to choose it without an OS,and since I know how to install an OS and already had a copy of Win 7,I thought to myself that there's no reason to get one with an OS.

Yeah, I don't think that chip set supports Windows 7. More knowledgeable people than myself would know for sure whether there would be a way to hack it to receive Windows 7 and I think this might involve what THRASH ZONE has already stated in the above. I have no experience with touch screens but if I were to own one of these I probably wouldn't bother trying to install Win 7 on it. I can't find anything in ASUS support for this.

Hi,
Post some of the bios options you believe to be set correctly
Security section/ Boot/ Advanced
If you have a flash drive you can most likely connect it and use the F12 key to save screen shots to the flash drive
Otherwise photo op with a camera

I'm pretty sure if it's at all possible you'd have to follow the uefi win-7 install process to setup the hdd or ssd with the uefi partition table.
