Windows 7 64x

I got it installed. Thanks.

One more thing.. What do we turn back on in the bios once win 7 has finished installing? Fast Boot? Security?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Not sure you need to turn on fast boot or secure boot

Both of those are for fake shutdown stuff for win-8... where hibernation is used instead of full shutdown.

W7 HP 64 bit

Hi we have a few asus netbooks. You don't do anything in security in the bios. You can turn fast boot (quick boot?) back on if you want but it doesn't make much difference if it's turned off. The main thing is that it is turned off before you install.
