In the UEFI interface you should have the option to revert to legacy BIOS mode which will enable booting from DVD.

yukpon, let's get some facts.  Did your computer come with an operating system pre-installed on it?  What operating system came on your computer?  Is there an operating system on the computer right now?  What operating system?  Can the computer boot right now?  What is the make and model of this computer?  Where did you get this OEM Windows 7 Professional disc?

In the UEFI screen, if you choose Advanced Mode and Boot, is CSM Support enabled? If not, enable it and either choose the optical drive as the first boot device, or press F8 and select it when the ASUS logo appears after you save and exit the UEFI control panel.

And since you've referred several times to a CD, as Agouti has requested, can you confirm the optical drive in the system is DVD capable, and if the Windows disc you have is a Windows 7 DVD install media or some kind of recovery/restoration disc?

it turns out i needed to switch around the boot priority the windows 7 disk is an oem disk and i have used the disk for system recoveries and reinstalls before it was just weird that it didnt do it this time i dont think its a recovery restoration disk the optical drive should be dvd capable

Yes, you need to enter the BIOS and change the boot order so that the optical drive is the first device in the order and the hdd/ssd is the second device.  Press F10 to save these changes and exit the BIOS.  


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

..and have the dvd in the drive as you enter BIOS, some BIOS won't change order unless it can read something in that device.  That's the way my custom-built desktop works.

All of my computers have been custom builds and I have never had a problem accessing the BIOS without a disc in the optical drive.

There are exceptions - for me maybe because it's my brand of UEFI/BIOS that came with the mobo.

Roland... my current build has the UEFIS firmware, still didn't need a disk in the optical drive tray. :deadhorse:
