Hi!
Trying to install Windows 7 (Retail 64 bit) using UEFI Boot but, when "Starting Windows" where it animates the flag, it hangs with 2 dots for the flag...

Things I have tried: 
-Firmware update to 405
-a Vista SP1 Disc (OEM 64 bit) (Hangs...)
-tried this usb / dvd method : http://www.laslow.net/?p=486 but doesn't boot... However, if I copy \efi\microsoft\boot to \efi\boot and rename cdboot_noprompt.efi to BOOTX64.efi it seems to boot from my usb stick after spining the dvd... but it hangs..
-then I vlite integrated drivers onto USB key, but still hangs...

Is there somthing I'm missing?

*Bump*

Nobody's tried a UEFI Install of *any* OS? ;)

Welp... an Update, Tried Server 2008 64bit... but hangs. Tried USB CDROM, but all three OS hangs too (Vista 7 2k8). Tried Ubuntu, but couldn't find the EFI loader... anybody know how to UEFI Installany Linux Distro? :)

Tech Support said to wait for a Firmware Update... so... waiting...
Why must I do things the Hard way¿ :D

Hi, I know this was one year ago but did you manage to fix it? Trying to find the solution for same problem on laptop N43SL. The technical support was not particularly useful... Regards, jcarneiro
