It's listed in my Boot Menu as UEFI: USB Flas Memory, Partition 1 (14887MB). I also tried setting CSM to Enabled, and all other four boot settings set to UEFI Only (or UEFi driver first). Same thing, it will not boot from the USB even though listed in the boot menu. If I have CSM set to Enabled and all others set to UEFI and Legacy OPROM (or just Legacy), it boots to USB just fine and begins to install Win7.

For some reason, it doesn't seem to like my USB drive when CSM is set to Auto. I formatted the USB as FAT32. Should I have used NTFS?

Again, thanks for any insights,

When you say it won't boot, what exactly happens?

I've just completed the first stage of a windows 10 install and got to the desktop it using a fat32 formated thumbdrive.

When I press F8 while in POST to get to the Boot Menu (per the manual), it lists my USB drive (preceeded by UEFI). But the only button available on the Boot Menu screen is Cancel. If I hit Save & Exit (thinking it will boot to my USB), it just goes right back into UEFI after POST.

Thanks for the reply,

Have you got any other install disks or bootable media you can try and see if they boot via UEFI?

Also how old is your win7 image? I can't remember the exact date, but only later versions are capable of a UEFI boot. Do you have another computer to plug the thumbdrive in to see if it has a ufi folder in the root directory?

I need some help, have just installed a fresh copy of win10 with CSM set to AUTO, installed chipset driver, mei driver, Samsung NVME driver, and like last time during the Wi-Fi driver install, the system locked up with CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. any ideas?

All drivers were from Asus website, apart from Samsung.

Edit: emergency over, it has installed properly now, Fastboot is working as it should too (yay). Only thing now is the Intel network drivers are taking forever.

I only have one other copy of Win7 Pro, but the date on it is older (2009) than the copy I purchased last month. The copy I purchased last month was sealed (new) and dated 06/2011 and includes SP1, and is what I copied/pasted to my USB drive. I have another USB drive I can make bootable and try.

Whether using this computer or the old one that crashed (and I rebuilt this week), I don't see a UFI folder on my thumb drive, either Win7 install disks (2009 and 2011), or either hard drives on the two machines. I do see a folder on both Win7 install disks named EFI.

Edit:
On the positive side, at least when I set CSM back to Enabled and everything else set to Legacy, all of my drives reappear and my Win 7 loads normally.

Ahh, when you say copy, did you use a media creation tool or was it just a copy and paste? The USB needs to be set up a certain way.

Is there no way you can install from the DVD?

I did a copy/paste from WIn7 install disk directly to the USB. I do have two Blu-ray players, so I could deviate from the Z170 manual and use a second ODD. However when I switch CSM to Auto. not only do my SSD drives disappear from the Boot Menu, both of my optical drives also disappear.

Do they re-appear when the DVD's are inserted?

Also there should be a couple of new options in the BIOS created since the manual was written that emulate USB mouse and keyboard in Win7 setup.

I was getting Watchdog & WHEA errors when vcore was too low (I was trying to find a lower vcore setting then)

Yeah I'd thought of that, I'd tried it previously with stock clocks. Iirc I also got them during the second time I upgraded from 7, (first was successful) suring the install process itself. apparently juggling driver install threads between cores caused timing errors when things started and finished at different times then expected. So a process was ready to start something before another something it was expecting was ready.


The funny thing is this problem with driver installation crashes never occurred with MBR installs, only GPT.
