    W7 64B USB boot on Windows 8 EFI - Error 0Xc000000d


    Hi guys,

    I have an ASUS U32VJ laptop (Complete USB 3.0 ports - no 2.0, i5 3210, HD4000+GT365M, 4GB RAM).

    I want to install Windows 7 64bit for now and just leave W8 in a partition I will not look at.
    So i partition off the data drive ASUS left for me and give a fat 200GB+ for a Windows 7.

    I get the following when I try to boot from via EFI menu and even through the BIOS to go EFI from USB:

    Not sure what information you great people will require but here is the disk management view of the hard disk:

    and further below, printscreens of bootx64.efi location and the cmd commands:

    Could this problem be caused due to having a 2.0 USB stick in USB 3.0? There aren't any USB 2.0s on this machine unfortunately (never thought i would say that :O )?

    Thank you all in advance,

    Dan

    Partition will need to NTFS.

    Using a USB Pendrive on a PC with a uEFI BIOS.
    USB Pendrive need to be formated to FAT32 as in
    UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows
    Take note of Step 11 for Windows 7.

    If using a USB 3.0 port, you will also need to slipstream in the USB 3.0 drivers in to the ISO, using the APP in this tutorial:
    Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File - Windows 7 Forums

    You can install Windows 7 x64 in dual boot first or second.

    Follow Step one to five in this tutorial:
    Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7

    I got the same problem, I wanted to install win 7 after win 8 in UEFI mode and I got the same error but when I tried to change the mod to legacy the flash disk boot normally also I tried to put the windows in a DVD disk but the computer does not recognize the disk as UEFI, and I'm very sure about the steps how to make the UEFI bootable flash disk.
    any help please?

    Hi there
    It could be something as simple as this

    Is Windows itself on a GPT disk. Windows 7 X-86 will not (AFAIK) allow the BOOT disk to be GPT (although it can recognize and handle GPT drives provided they aren't the boot drive). X-64 may be possible but there do seem to be problems with it.

    Your UEFI Windows disk on W8 could well be defined as a GPT disk -- then AFAIK you'll have to convert it back to MBR for Windows 7 if you really can't get it to work.

    Please folks check this first but I'm 100% sure I read about the limitation with W7 and GPT disks somewhere. - Note this is a separate issue to EUFI. I know X-86 is not supported -- x-64 ?? though.

    You might get more info from this thread

    Anyone here booting Windows 7 x64 with native UEFI and GPT disk?

    Cheers

    Thank you for the replies guys...
    and indeed I have SSD hard disk with GPT and sorry I did not get your point about converting MBR and how it's done? also is that mean I will lose windows 8? because I want to make dual boot?
    and thanks again for your help.

    Have you set the uEFI/BIOS firmware, as in the tutorial in post 2?
