Windows 7: What's wrong: CSM is ON, SecBoot is Off, HDD is MBR. Win7 x64

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

That is a very good list, technically I'm using a Pentium® Processor N3700, but the listing is the same.

But this chap, 7freedom, here (Unable to install Windows 7 on BRAND NEW Asus X540s laptop-BSOD Error), managed to get Win7 going and he is using the same processor and laptop? I followed the step he mentioned.

Why have I managed to get as far as I have before this became an issue?
Some of the OS is loading either to get some drivers loaded but not all of them or at least to get the boot option menu.

Heck Windows installed, why can the install system run but not the OS itself?

Brilliant so far. .:)
