    Question Install Windows 7 on Asus GL552VW

    Hello,

    I have an Asus RoG GL552VW and want to install Windows 7 on it.

    When I boot the installer, I have a message saying that a driver is missing and that I have to load it to continue.

    I think it is the hard drive driver (SSD M2 Sata Crucial MX500) but I can't find it on internet. I have tried to install on another hard drive (not a SSD) but there is the same message.

    Thank you in advance for your help

    Windows 7 doesn't support true UEFI mode, that's how it's set by default. See if you can change that in the BIOS options.

    Install Windows 7 on Asus GL552VW

    Hello,

    I created the boot usb key in MBR mode and started on this key in MBR mode but the installer still asks me for a driver to continue the installation.

    Windows 7 is not supported on newer notebooks so drivers are not provided. I recommend doing some research into installing Win 7 on newer hardware as it can be a complex process, if it works at all. You may have to manually edit driver configs and slipstream them into a custom ISO.

    Or you could install Windows 10 as the manufacturer intended and everything will just work and you'll have full support.
