Help Regarding Installing Windows 7

HP ay007tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to install windows 7 x64 on my laptop HP ay007tx in UEFI mode with gpt. Any idea how to get win7 to boot up.

I already tried rufus to burn in uefi mode and also tried to put bootx64.efi in bootable Pd but it didnt boot up.

Hello,

 

Thank you for posting. Welcome  to the forum!

 

Your PC model originally came with no operating system preinstalled. Because of this, when no hardware issues are there, you should seek support directly from the operating system vendor (Windows = a.k.a. Microsoft).

 

I strongly recommend you try to install Windows 7 in :

- Secure Boot - disabled mode

- BIOS (Legacy) mode, not UEFI

- MBR mode

 

If you want to try to install Win7 in UEFI mode, you can read this Microsoft blog article >> https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askcore/2011/05/31/installing-windows-7-on-uefi-based-computer/

 

or reach to Microsoft Support for assistance >> https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/answerdesk/chat/default.aspx?productkey=awasahome

 

 

Hope this works for you.
