It’s difficult to install Windows 7 on an Asus laptop because of its recovery partition. I recommend that you go into the BIOS and change the boot order so that it boots off of USB rather than HDD first.
I found this YouTube video tutorial which may be helpful for your situation.
- Locate the CD/DVD drive on your laptop
- Insert the disc into CD/DVD drive, and wait for the installation to begin
- Follow prompts until you reach “Where do you want to install Windows?”
- Select partition labeled C:\ (or whichever partition is appropriate)
- Wait for the installation process to complete before restarting the computer
- You may need to enter BIOS setup in order for windows 7 to boot up properly – consult with your laptop’s manual or manufacturer website for instructions on how to access the BIOS setup menu
BIOS setup on Asus laptop
As you press and hold the F2 key, a BIOS screen will appear on your laptop. ASUS recommends that before booting up to enter Windows as normal or under any other operating system such as Linux for example-be sure to use this same button combination (F2) while loading into bios in order avoid having trouble with starting windows properly
The traditional ASUS access-BIOS key, F2 is the only option that should work for you. Other options to try to include holding down control alt delete while pushing fn + Print Screen at once (or Fn+Scrn).

2ND Option For BIOS setup
Some ASUS laptop models need to use another key for entering the BIOS. The most common alternative is Delete, but if that doesn’t work try Insert or F10 instead in rare cases it’s with the 10th entry on Dias of computer bootup which includes Fn+F1-6 keys as well
As seen by input text only: Some people may find pressing Enter while holding one (or more) special function key(s), like Space Bar/Return Key, etc., before switching On Power helps them unlock their system quickly without having to go through all those steps just because they don’t know what numbers are associated with certain functions during startup process the operating system. This is the only time you can enter BIOS, which explains why holding the button down before switching on the power is an effective approach for getting into BIOS.
