View Full Version : how to install windows 7 on G75VW?

12-11-2012, 07:42 PM

I just got an Intel 330 180GB SSD

I've removed the existing 500GB 5400RPM HDD and replaced with the SSD

I don't want Windows 8 on this laptop, I want to be able to install Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

so far what I've tried:
call Asus support, just to be told that they don't support Windows 7 on this laptop and they can't help me

tried Windows 7 DVD on it, installation will not start and shows a black screen with somekind of boot manager error
tried to diskpart a USB flash drive and copied the Windows 7 DVD on it (including adding the bootx64.efi to efi\boot), I get the same black screen as above but different code

sites I tried to follow:


what I want to be able is to boot from USB with a Windows 7 installation and just install the OS

I disabled the OS control thing into the BIOS

I don't have the option to disable the UEFI BIOS as you have!

I even updated to 221 and there is no option for that

in your bios, besides disabling Secure Boot Control, enable the Launch CSM.

Anyone have luck with this? I am also stuck and i have updated to the latest bios

Ok, it seems i have made progress. I enabled launch CSM and now i am able to see my USB drive as a bootable option. Ive chosen to boot from USB and its doing the windows 7 install now. Maybe this worked..

I tried to install Windows 7 (64 bit) on a partition of the SSD, but I seem to be out of luck. When I try to boot my install, error 0xc0000225 appears, and the repair functionality on my installation CD won't even start, as it doesn't recognize any compatible Windows installation. No idea what to do, last year installing Windows 7 worked flawlessly.
