Windows 7: Post install bootloop

Post install bootloop

Hello, after installing Windows 7 I am always in a bootloop I have tried 6 different iso's including a dvd which I know for a fact works. I either get winload.efi isn't valid or it locks up on Starting Windows. I am completely lost on what to do.Attached is a bootlog generated by the boot manager when it freezes on Starting Windows.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Also as a side note I should mention Secure boot is disabled, BCD was rebuilt numerous times and Startup Repair doesn't find any issues. Surface Scan doesn't find any integrity violations.

Hello HyperBasic,
welcome to the Forum.


Is it something simple? Had you already taken the DVD out of the DVD tray when finished, or have you already set the Boot Priority back to HDD first boot device?

Thanks for the welcome! Whenever I finish installing I always remove the installation media whether that's a USB or a DVD also the HDD is always the first boot device I select the media using my boot menu.

If I've got your system details correct, the Asus ROG Strix GL12CP is compatible with Windows 10. This could be why you are having troubles booting to Windows 7.

Win 7 installation disk doesn't have USB3.x, SATA and MVMe drivers needed to install on new MoBo. You need to add those drivers (USB3.x, SATA and MVMe) to installation disk.
SIW2 has made a tutorial to do it.
