    *HELP!* Windows 8 Boot Menu not showing?


    So I am here trying to downgrade my Windows 8 laptop to Windows 7. (It is an ASUS X55U by the way)

    Everytime I go to advanced startup settings it doesnt show the troubleshoot option, only the Continue and Turn Off Your PC options. It's frustrating me I've tried everything and the option won't appear.

    Anyone know what's wrong?

    You might need drivers - best d/l them from Asus website first.

    Good luck with it. Win 7 is great.

    My BIOS menu isn't showing my hard drive, just my USB drive (which has my Windows 7 on it) and my dvd drive, is there any fix for this?

    You need to enable CSM and PXE first , then reboot. Tap F2 to go into bios again and the Hard Drive boot option should be there.

    The PO: ST9320325AS thing is a seagate HD.

    Set dvd drive first, and the oddly named Windows boot manager ( PO: ST9320325AS0) second.
