Windows 7: Cannot Install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - Laptop

Cannot Install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - Laptop

Asus Rog GL553VD. The laptop came with Windows 10 Home installed.

I made the partition and tried to install Windows 7 Ultimate. Every time the windows completes its Primary Installation it reboots and then prior starting installing the second phase it shows the Blue Screen and restarts. Keeps on happening.

Couple of changes I have made prior to installing Windows 7.

CSM - Enabled Secure Boot
Disabled Launch PXE OpRom Policy Disable
Boot Priority - 1/ DVD, 2/ HDD 3/Realtek

Just to let every one know that I can install Windows 10 without any problems. However, occasionally it hangs while loading but happens 2/10 times. Is that anything to do with the changes I have made on BIOS ?

Somebody PLEASE HELP!

Win 7 isn't compatible with Secure boot. Also disable fast boot.
When you booted from the win 7 installation disk, did you choose UEFI option?

I have the exact same notebook and am trying to do the same thing. My Windows 7 Ultimate x64 though is one of the originals. Would it help to use a disc with SP1 already installed? I managed to stop the blue screen issue but it locks up for me when it gets to the Windows 7 logo when starting the install. Ideally, I would like Windows 8.1 on it but I can't find a SATA driver that actually works to get the hard drive to show up to start the install.

I did read through the first post, which pretty much is how i was attempting things. I can't get the hard drive to appear though to delete the partitions and to install Windows on Windows 8. The Windows 7 install locks up every time after the "loading setup files" after hitting any key to start the setup when it gets to the Windows logo. I can't find any way in the BIOS to turn off ACHI for RAID or SATA mode to get around all of the drivers I have tried on the Windows 8 install not actually getting the hard drive to show up to proceed with the install.

I am just a tad confused now as to what you want on the machine 7 8 or 10? Now to me if say you wanted 7 then just clean install it from an ISO Clean Install Windows 7 < use the Microsoft Software Recovery link for the ISO as you must have the key or am I assuming that? The same goes for 8 or 10 if you do not have your key try this Product Key Number for Windows 7 - Find and See
If you have data you need to save before you do that use this

BOOTABLE UBUNTU

Makea bootable Ubuntu disk https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Setthe BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will showyou a screen with TRYor INSTALL> select TRYnotINSTALL

Whenit is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen likein the pic .

Openthe drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data /settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to anexternal source or other installed drive doing this.

Iam not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc usingthis method both on "dead" or just plain drives that youcannot get data from using Windows.




Or there is thisEmergency Kit - save your files from a dead OS I prefer Ubuntu a tad easier to set up but this does the same thing
