Windows 7: Unable to install Win 7 x64 in UEFI mode on ASUS MoBo (TR4 socket)

As I wrote before, Asus name Windows UEFI as Windows 8 / 10.
You have to try other BIOS configuration related to CSM / UEFI

Silly question, but is your Win 7 installation disk 64 bits? Only 64 bits boots as UEFI.

I believe I am out of combinations. I actually think I tried all of them.
It has to be the BIOS... Asus really screwed me over. Just another gimmick to force people into Windows 10.

It is.
It's just that the disc doesn't have the boot folder under the efi folder with the bootx64.efi file.
I don't know if that makes any difference in optical media, or it's just for flash drives.

sorry to bring this old thread back but asus is not the only OEM that "screwed" people over.
all manufacturers that made PCs & motherboards in the past few years are no longer Win7 compatible.


the asus Prime X399-A board that you are using is only Win10 compatible and there are only Win10 x64 drivers for the Prime X399-A board. installing win7 on there will be next to impossible, BizkitBoy



if you really want to install Win7 on a UEFI based board, you need to get an older one that was manufactured between late 2012 and mid 2016 (perhaps a Socket FM1 or FM2 board like F1A55 or F1A75)

Check win raid forum. Plenty of people running win7 on 300, 400 series boards with ryzen 3000 ( not apu)

Also H310/B360/H370/Q370/Z390/HM370 and othet 14nm 300 series chips intel
we have graphics drivers for intel uhd620 and hd630 also.
