Windows 7: ASUS X553 Laptop no OS Selection in BIOS 205

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
ASUS X553 Laptop no OS Selection in BIOS 205

I recently posted a reply in a 277 Day Old thread with people who had success using mismatched to their model BIOS firmware to gain access to the windows 7 compatibility features, specifically " OS Selection > Windows 7 "
I'm posting here as well because I figure this will reach the grand audience and the users from the older post may get the email notification and have direct information.
I don't usually post in old threads but I've scoured the internet and tried many times installing with no success.

I've downgraded windows 8 MANY times before (actually, EVERY time...) and never ran into a situation where 7 would not load. This is the first machine with windows 10 out-of-the-box and it seems they are removing legacy supports for windows 7.

Anyway, here is the post.

I've noticed you all having success installing the 550.300 firmware on your 552 machines...
I have a 553 Machine and I'm not even able to see the 550.300 firmware when I'm in the Easy Flash utility.
I've got an Asus X553SA and there is NO " OS Selection " in the bios.
I was able to install Windows 7 from a known-good DVD after disabling secure boot, enabling CSM and cleaning the drive in diskpart. Unfortunately it does the usual " Loading Windows > Bluescreen > LOOP. " In "safe-mode", the last driver to load is disk.sys.

I've tried every BIOS firmware version on the asus driver / support section of this mode's page.
I'm currently running BIOS version 205, which is the latest offered on the support page.

If ANYONE has WINDOWS 7 64 ULTIMATE running on their X553SA, PLEASE let me know how you've done it!
Thank you so much in advance.
