Theog, as I have mentioned before, my ASUS desktop throws me back into the bios when trying to boot to Windows 7 with Secure Boot enabled.

The CSM settings may need to be changed to allow booting into Windows 7.

The CSM settings may need to be changed to allow booting into Windows 7.

Enable legacy support (An Option which enables to boot Windows DVD with both BIOS and UEFI).
Disable secureboot.

This helps your BIOS to identify all the hardware s in your notebook without drivers.
So continue with Windows installation. Prefer installing through DVD. Because modern notebooks come with USB 3.0 for which drivers need to be installed.

Then you should be able to boot easily to install your OS. And if your Installation media contains efi/boot/bootx64.efi , then System prefers to install Windows with UEFI enabled. You can enable secureboot after installation of windows 8.

Keep in mind that only Windows 8 x64 installation contains efi/boot/bootx64.efi
If you want to install Windows 7 x64, follow these steps.
