Windows 7: Having trouble installing Windows 7 Ultimate due to a *Load Driver*

Having trouble installing Windows 7 Ultimate due to a *Load Driver*

Hello there! Let me describe my problem: I have a HP Pavilion 11-n010sn x360 convertible Laptop. It had Windows 8.1 on it, and most of the updates failed to install, then I updated to Windows 10, still some of the updates had the same effects. Nevermind, here is what I did on it: I wanted to install on a new 75GB Partition Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
I took the ISOs from an Windows ISO downloader from *cough*heidoc(dot)net*cough*. It ain't having any piracy, just a free downloader that gives you download links from Microsoft. Meh, I think I broke one rule there, nevermind, The issue is that I had an Load Driver error, because it couldn't find the CD/DVD Driver. If you look at the Device Specs, *caps* there is no *censored* driver for any disks */caps*.
I tried changing the USB device with the installer to somewhere else.
One big issue is my BIOS/UEFI. It has just some settings for Virtualization Tech., Secure Boot, and CSM. *caps* nothing else! */caps*. That makes me because I cannot change to boot from USB 3.0, and other stuff. BIOS Version: Insyde F.20 (or something like that). I do think, however, that I can download a driver, that is not compatible, or that has the most success rate, and to download it to the computer. Then, I could load it there, and the installation should be normal...

What do you think? Will I get the help to install Windows Seven on my Laptop?


(P.S.: If it works, I will activate it with a Genuine Key. Not gonna tell you the key number, tho.)

Just create a usb 3.0 installer using Asus`s EZ Installer Program.

You need a working PC with a DVD rom, a windows 7 install DVD and I would use at least an 8 GB usb stick, you can always try a 4 GB stick.

Get the EZ Installer program from Asus support, it does all the work and so simple a Computer Technician could do it.

You have to disable Secure Boot, if you can`t ... well then.

The bios should be set to Legacy or Legacy & UEFI and the hard drive should be MBR, not GPT.

If you can`t do any of those things, then you may be installing Windows 8.1 again, then I`d upgrade to 10.

Good Luck

SSD is on factory GPT. To convert to MBR, I have to erase my system, which I have to keep, because I do not have a CD/DVD drive. I do not have it installed. I do not know how to say this, but *caps* I do not have any CD/DVD related crap on my laptop */caps*. I can disable Secure Boot and Activate CSM. Not able to change advanced stuff, like, ACHI, SATA, whatever, and Legacy/UEFI. It is too simple and I won't risk anything. All I need is to keep Windows 7 and 10 installed on GPT SSD drive I have.

Is it possible to install Windows 7 Home Premium on a HP Pavilion 11 x360 that comes with Win8.1?
Quote:
Make sure that in "System Configuration" > "USB3.0 Config in Pre-Boot" which is set to "Enabled". This must be set to "Auto"

Disable secure boot & ENABLE Legacy:

Additionally, as the hard drive is most likely partitioned as GPT, you must boot using the UEFI-Internal CD/DVD or UEFI-USB Key/Drive to install Windows on a GPT partitioned disk.

Power on or reboot the computer and tap F9 or ESC and then F9 when prompted. Select the UEFI boot source you are using and press ENTER.

I checked everything. Nothing works. Did you read what did I say in the first post?
I want Windows 7 because I upgraded to 10 from 8.1. No games that worked on 7 would work on 10 from 8.1. Trust me. I checked absolutely everything.

I am trying to download some Seagate Hard Disk drivers from the HP's site on my model, but I find that the drivers are in a *.exe format. Any clue how to actually get the drivers to be in a *.cab format? (To be honest, I have no idea how driver files are. Manufacturers just make their stuff so you cannot install any other OS, so you need their drivers, but they are in a *.exe format.)

Let me clarify the BIOS: It has the following: Time/date, log, password for turning it on/entering bios, VT (virt. tech.), Secure Boot, Legacy Support with CSM, Boot order, other Intel stuff that is quite useless.
It does NOT have the following: SATA/AHCI toggle, Usb 3.0 Boot Support On/Off toggle, Overclocking support, Pretty much what an ASUS BIOS should have (tons of settings). Anything that could help me will be greatly appreciated.

To be honest, if there is nothing else I can do... then I will use my last resort: Converting to MBR and going full Legacy. But first, I will do several backups, just to be safe.
Sucks to be me, I know...

If there is nothing else I can do, should I proceed and convert my drive to MBR?
