Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 511

post #5101 of 5384
Sean I'm at the point where I'm ready to install Windows after following your "How to make a bootable Windows 7 USB for the UEFI motherboard and GPT format install". But before I begin I'm a bit confused about something. In the post above you suggested I, "...do a UEFI/GPT install". But in the guide you state, " Important! You should not use GPT format unless you need to. The MBR format is what most people should use. You should only use GPT if you want to boot Windows off a 2.2TB+ partition".

Can you elaborate please before I start the windows install and do the Shift + F10 / GPT format? Thanks man.

People who dont know what they are doing often read this guide and run into issues so it is easiest to deter them if they are not technically inclined to troubleshoot.

10/4. I'll continue on with the GPT format/install. Thanks for you patience.

Hey Sean,

thanks for the help. I did some research and managed to find the program. smile.gif

In case anybody else needs it:
The program is called "ei.cfg Removal Utility", and can be found here: http://code.kliu.org/misc/winisoutils/ (or just google for the program name, but I think this is the official website).
Just download it, run the program and point it to your ISO file. It changes the ISO in mere seconds, allowing you to choose what Win 7 (or Win 7 N) version to install.

Cheers.
post #5105 of 5384
Really? So if I get the most basic Win7, I can run this tool and change it to Ultimate?

EDIT: oh wait...but of course the key that one buys has to match the version of Windows installed correct. So it's not like someone can pay for basic Win and use this to have Ultimate all of a sudden.

You should be able to.

My board doesn't have a fast boot option.. If I go with UEFI boot again, I won't gain any performance increase, right? I'm not booting off of a 2TB (or more) drive anyway.
post #5109 of 5384
OK Sean I'm back at it today but just not going well. Trying to load win7 first. I have CSM disabled, I followed your instructions on how to create a bootable usb drive. So it does boot from the usb thumbdrive, I see the, "windows is loading files..." screen, goes to the "starting windows" screen where the animated windows symbol appears but after just a few seconds the screen goes black and this appears...




With CSM enabled windows loads up just fine and can get to the screen where I can use the Shift+F10 option. I have no idea why I can't do this with CSM disabled.

EDIT: I only have 1 drive installed (Plextor M.2 PX-G256M6e), in the bios boot menu the usb stick that has windows on it DOES have the "UEFI" in front of the drive label "UEFI: (FAT) SandDisk (30550MB)".

EDIT: something I noticed is that my Plextor M.2 dive where I want windows to go to only shows up in the boot menu when CSM is on. If I turn CSM off and then restart, I then can only see the UEFI SanDisk usb.

CSM on...



CSM off...

I wonder if this has anything to do with the problem I explained in the above post....




Am I suppose to add a "Microsoft signed UEFI driver" to my PCIe M.2 drive or should it have shipped with one already on it? Could this be the cause of my troubles?
