Hello

I just received a K46CM with Win8 pre-installed
I wish to downgrade to Win 7
But as i read i need to paly with two options in the BIOS : desactivating No secure boot and activating Lanch CMS option.
I have not those options available in the BIOS
This is strange as those caracteristics are present in the bios file description.

I am stuck and a bit disapointed to be forced to use Win8.

Any help?

Regards

Hi, although I'm not familiar with the K46CM model, I'm guessing you don't need to change those settings to install Win7 if you do not see them.
If it will not cause any problems to try, you may want to install Win7 if you have not already tried or let us know what problems you found.

Launch CSM may not be enabled on the K46CM. Try installing Win 7 and see what happens. What BIOS settings are there?

Thank you guys, i managed to setup Win 7 via USB.
Just had to rename a file in the setup so that it could handle GPT partition table.

Forgot about that. That is a concern, since drives are being formatted to GPT now, since EFI has become the standard in computers.
