Hi guys I'm newbie here.

and SATA drive 1Tb.

I tried number of attempt even created USB Pen drive using the Windows DVD Installing Tool.
I used even Rufus to create the Pendrive,
What happend iis this.
the istalling wend ok but when the Laptop tryed to reboot and load windows i'm getting Blue screen
saying Your Bios is not compatible for the ACTS, something like that?
What is the best method for installing windows 7 on ASUS ROG?
Does the Drive has to be converted from MBR to GPT?
how to i change the configuration settings from UEFI.
I've used this guide and no successhttp://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-7-installation-help-for-intel-skylake-and-kaby-lake-laptops.803630/
I even created an ISO file from my original DVD of W7 Ultimate, i tried to directly install win7 from the DVD with 10 running.
this the massage i was getting
Windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk is of the GPT partition style.

This tutorial will be helpful. (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?76993-Guide-How-to-install-windows-8-8-1-10-The-proper-way-(UEFI-based-installation)) Use you will need to have a version of Windows 7 SP! and use you will have to install it UEFI GPT. All this can be done. your next issue will be drivers for your notebook that will work on windows 7 That will be the real challenge

You should probably change your UEFI setting for SATA to UEFI. otherwise, you'll have to install an RST driver to be able to see your SSD to install too. I am still not convinced that Windows 7 will run on a M.2 NVME SSD not that anything is impossible, but what you have to go through to accomplish it is it worth it? I couldn't possibly think so while win 7 was a great 6 years ago times have changed technology has changed. You have purchased a modern very high tech notebook why cripple it with an ancient OS.
