Windows 7: Trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus E200HA

Trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus E200HA

So got this really lightweight machine, and was hoping to get windows 7 home premium (uefi ready) on it as windows 10 is just not for me. Unfortunately, after the installation it won't boot. So I tried windows 8.1, which installed well, but the keyboard and trackpad would not be recognized. So I reinstalled windows 10 (in which the trackpad also doesn't work until I install the chipset drivers) in order to copy the drivers by using {dism /online /export-driver /destination:E:\Drivers} command. in windows 8.1 it would not install the chipset driver - it would load the setup and then say that a restart is required in order to roll back the changes - which didn't help. So, Obviously, my first choice is windows 7. Is there a chance to get it to work? If not, is there a way to make the chipset drivers install on windows 8.1? It works much better with windows 8.1 but I have to use usb keyboard and mouse which is not very usefull on a small netbook.
Thanks so much for your precious time!

Samuel

Hi Mulic,
as its EUFI, follow this tutorial
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Help Forums

Once installed you will be better off going to the makers sites for drivers, not Asus.

note the W10 product key will not be valid for W7, you will have to purchase one, likewise 8.1.

Thanks so much for your reply!
I followed this steps, only using rufus to create a bootable usb. It installs well but then, upon first boot, if will fail.
What do you mean by getting drivers from the "makers sites" and not asus. It is an Asus laptop.

Thanks again,

Samuel

Hi Milic,

Does it just go a blank screen or back to the Bios.
if it the Bios screen then the settings are incorrect
How many partitions are on it, are you dual booting???

As Asus does not provide W7 drivers for that lappy, you have no choice but to go direct to the manufactures sites ie Intel ect

Thanks Again.
It just goes to a black screen and then shows an error message. I will install it again and upload the exact error message. I'm not dual booting - Just one partition - 32GB eMMC.
When I Google "intel x5 z8350 drivers", i get to intel's website, but the only download I see is "Intel® Processor Identification Utility - Windows*".

This is the error screen I get:

I get it just after installation is finished upon restart. I tried to unplug my mouse and usb drive, but that didn't help. Any Idea?

Thanks again,

Thanks!
The thread you linked describes a problem where windows won't recognize the drivers during installation. I got through the installation. Afterwards I get this error screen I uploaded. The install process went smoothly.

Check your BIOS settings.
- Disable Safe boot ( win 7 isn't compatible). It may be as OS=other or CSM
- Disable fast boot (may turn on after installation is running with all drivers installed)

Thanks! The bios in this laptop is quite minimalistic.
I did disable secure boot.
I disabled fast boot after installation, after the boot failed and I got the message above. Will it help if I disable fastboot before installation and install again?

Thanks again,
