    I had no idea about the Asus installer. That's pretty handy. It sure beats slipstreaming the necessary drivers through command line.

    Yeah, it works really well. Kevin from Eurocom has been using it for installing Windows 7 on the new Clevos he is testing. The ASUS desktop chipset and Intel ME drivers work fine on Clevo laptops as well.

    For some reason it is no longer there, try this:
    1. Go to https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_Download/ select Windows 7 64-bit and download Asus EZ installer
    2. Extract the Asus EZ installer. Once extracted, go to the Asus EZ Installer folder and extract Asus EZ Installer
    [​IMG]
    So the final directory (assuming you did not rename anything), should be C:\Users\YourUserName\Downloads\ASUS_EZInstaller_V10316_20170830_43.1\ASUS EZ Installer\ASUS EZ Installer.
    [​IMG]
    3. Once EZ installer load. select the option Windows 7 OS disc to USB and click next

    4. It will now ask you for a disk source
    [​IMG]
    You need to have a Windows 7 ISO (can download one from here http://mirror.corenoc.de/digitalrivercontent.net/) mounted on a virtual drive like daemon tools lite 10 (https://www.daemon-tools.cc/downloads).
    Only then you can select a source.
    5. Insert 8GB USB
    6. Create the bootable drive.
    7. Shutdown. go into bios and disable UEFI boot. Boot from the USB drive.
    8. It will be like a normal Windows 7 installation and then install the Clevo drivers afterwards.

    Thanks so.much!
    Installed and so far no significant issues. Am i supposed to keep uefi boot disabled after the install?

    While trying to install clevo drivers with autorun i got " os you are using cannot be supported"

    So Installed drivers manually from drivers folder. After Chipset driver install and restart i got
    "Pci standard pci to pci bridge device unplugged"
    Not sure what that means

    Also had trouble with killer network manager so just installed those drivers manually through control panel no problem.

    Intel management engine also problem installing. Do i need that?

    Thanks

    Yup, you can keep it disabled. I won't be able to answer the Pci standard error, do you have a device manager screenshot?
    As for the IME, I think used the one posted here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/important-security-update.811312/ .

    Use an INF-only driver for the Intel ME. You can right-click on the heci.inf file and choose "Install" instead of using a Windows installer version. That is how I do it. I do not want the extra payload of worthless crap from the Windows Installer version of the ME driver.
