So I bought this laptop new from Best buy, Asus X55c. It came with Windows 8. I hate windows 8, So I cleaned it using diskpart in my Desktop.
My Problem is that with the HDD being cleaned, and trying to install windows 7 x64, the installation will hang at "Starting Windows". I am using a genuine windows 7 disc with the hologram. I used this disk just yesterday on a build so I know it works.
Boot secure was the first thing I took off, sorry I didn't mention it. I have tried to run a OCZ SSD (Sata II) with the firmware updated, as soon as I power up it takes me straight to bios, and if I exit, it takes me right back to bios. I'm using the latest bios. I can take the standard hdd to my desktop install windows 7 using my disc, no problem. On this laptop, just hangs.
