Windows 7 install stuck on Asus N751JK UEFI

Published by:

If you bought a new Asus laptop and want to install windows 7, you’ll find that the installation will hang on starting windows and will not continue. This is because of UEFI ( Unified Extensible Firmware Interface ) which is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. You can read all about it on the Wikipedia page (link)

As it stands, only windows 8 setup can be booted from the DVD drive. If you want to boot a windows 7 DVD , you’ll need to disable UEFI’s secure boot.

On the newer ASUS laptops enter the BIOS. ( press escape continuously during boot until it asks you to go into setup ).
Select Enter Setup:

Go to the SECURITY tab and select Secure Boot Control. Set Secure Boot Control to DISABLED.

Then go to the BOOT tab and select Launch CSM. Set Launch CSM to ENABLED. (This will make booting backwards compatible)

26-12-2014 16-05-15

The select Launch PXE OpROM and set it to ENABLED.

26-12-2014 16-18-53

Then go to the Save & Setup tab. Select Save Changes and Exit. Choose YES in On the Save & Exit setup.

Your laptop will now restart. And the setup of windows 7 will now continue past the point where it first hung.

Happy Birthday Eee PC!

One year ago ASUS began selling a notebook that would change the laptop industry. It was October 16, 2007 that the ASUS Eee PC 701 went on sale in Taiwan, ten days later LAPTOP Magazine was one of the first media outlets to review the sub-notebook. Happy Birthday Eee PC!

Out of personnel experience (Eee PC 901) I can say this ASUS miracle is indeed … a miracle. Fast, runs windows xp, wifi, network, sound, webcam… all you’ll ever dream of in a very small unit.
