  1. I originally started this question on another forum and yet to date have my issue resolved. I have a gigabyte H77N-wifi motherboard, 8 gig of memory, 3.9 mhz i5 processor, 1TB drive with Mavericks already installed that I have parted for a 256 GB windows install space. I have tried every process for making a usb install for win 7 and everything comes up to no windows install as when the windows install starts, the registry function completed but when the windows is installing screen starts, everything just freezes. Also, I cannot start in safe mode. Everything freezes at the installing classpnp.sys driver. Now, I'm sure you are going to ask...did you use rufus, was it mbr, was it legacy or uefi, was it fat32, was it exfat, was it apple gpt....on and on. I have been working on this going on two years now and tried every option I can think of. I have followed the instructions listed on many other sites. Nothing seems to work. Possibly something is setup incorrectly in the bios when installing Windows vs OS X? I have a Mavericks and El Capitan usb stick(s) setup and they work fine. I'm looking to setup a Win7 install on a GPT partition on an existing OSX Ejournaled partition from a Win7 USB install media. I have also verified that the Win7 ISOs I have tried are valid and not corrupted. This configuration was working well before things went south after an update. Any thoughts? I would like to get out from under this rock. Thank you in advance. - Rev -
  2. While researching my issues with my system I came across this post: My post Originally posted elsewhere: I have an H77N-wifi running 10.9.5 1 TB drive partitioned with a 250 GB windows sys and 750GB os x sys. I recently updated to the clover bootloader and all was well except I lost all things on my windows drive/partition. Decided to re-install win 7 on the windows partition and now have lost the clover boot option and my mac OS hard drive and now the system boots into windows only with no space bar, delete key, f*key intervention. I lost clover. I can restart and get clover by pressing the f12 key but it just hangs while selecting the the OS X apple drive. If I use my Mavericks install thumb drive and boot into the system settings options for the H77N and select boot option override after selecting "save and exit" all drives are there to select. I have re-installed clover, tried clover config, moved/copied the x64.efi file to many places in the apple boot folder in the efi partition.I can't figure it out. I would simply like clover to be the boot screen upon boot. Moving on to a fix I went to another forum to seek help. You can follow this link to see the conversation. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/lost-clover-and-os-x-drive-after-win-7-install.257239/ Now I am at a point where Clover will boot and I have three selections Boot install OS X from apple drive Boot OS X from apple drive Boot Windows from Windows Boot to install works, boot to apple drive works. Boot to windows just goes to black screen with a white square flash and the screes goes to black. The system is down. I would like to get the "Boot Windows from Windows" option to work. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance
