Windows 7: How to prevent Windows 7 installation from booting in UEFI mode?

The MBR scheme has nothing to do with the bios, only the hard drive.

Set the bios to legacy & uefi or strictly legacy, create a normal installer, or just use a dvd, it`s so much easier, and always disable secure boot, as Mike mentioned.

Not sure why so many people have trouble with this.

And to create a usb installer with usb 3.0 drivers integrated, just use Asus`s EZ Installer, it works perfectly, tested it yesterday.

Yea I didn't notice when this board was released so I don't know how old it is
But I had no issue with usb2 device with a usb3 port on my case so I don't know if usb3 driver is really the issue or not
I believe the usb3 driver issues were just on z170 series boards
x99 sure didn't have any issues

Switching sata ports sure is interesting though

There is no usb 3.0 driver issues during a W7 install anymore, not with Asus`s program EZ Installer.

Tested it yesterday, installed 7 Pro through the usb 3.0 port no problem.

But the whole idea is kinda stupid in my opinion, as you need a W7 install dvd or an iso file on a working computer to create the usb installer, so if you had a dvd, why not just use that to do your install But I suppose if one had a laptop with only usb 3.0 ports, then I guess it would be necessary.

edit: If you do not have a DVD drive.

Download the EZ Installer and extract the zip file contents.

Then copy from the OS folder the AutoUnattend folder and AutoUnattend.xml file to the root of the USB flash drive (see screenshot below).

You don`t have to do any of that extra work, just use the program, it does everything for you.

Why do more work then needed ?
