Windows 7: uefi bios wont boot win7usb stick

uefi bios wont boot win7usb stick

So I made a usb stick as I normally do.

Laptop detects it fine and can boot of it, laptop is old style of bios.

I tried to disable fast boot, disable secure boot, but still its bypassed.

Ironically a older usb stick I have with a 32bit windows on boots fine.

I noticed in the asus bios, on the drag drop boot order page the usb stick has [uefi] written next to it and isnt an option to boot it without [uefi] is this related to the problem?

The dvd drive has 2 boot devices one with uefi and one without.

Note I dont want to make a specialised uefi boot media, it has to work on old and uefi bios's.

If you don't want UEFI install with the required UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
then you can Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 normally.

bizzarelly it started working for no reason.

I have to manually select the usb stick on the boot menu, and that procedure now works, previously when I clicked on it I had the save and exit screen pop up, now it just boots directly and works, OS is installed as well.
