Acer and Windows 7 install on UEFI mode= hang up at Starting Windows

i read many people had same problem with acer laptops, i didnt see anyone has found solution until now


Maybe impossible on my acer laptop ?

in my bios i can only switch from legacy to uefi .

normaly i can install windows 7 64 bit in legacy mode without issue

but i want it to run it in uefi to enjoy uefi benefits

my hardware : liteon cv3 m.2 ssd . kabylake . i5 , usb3


any idea ?

Welcome to the Forum

Don't post same thread on two different posts.

It's very difficult to us to help you with the information you gave us.
Please edit your specs with ALL the hardware specs.

- Did you set Secure boot and fast boot to disable in BIOS?
- Do you have a option to set the OS? Is it set to Other?
- To install as UEFI you must boot the Win 7 installation disk as UEFI. Are you installing from a DVD or USB flash disk?
