Hi, I have made an bootable usb with win7 on it.
When I try to boot my win8 pc with the usb stick it stucks when "Windows is starting up" appears.

I have no idea what to do. I want to delete win8 as I get discdrive errors very often..

I have turned off Secure Boot Camp and setted USB as 1th priority within the boot section.

If you're getting disk drive errors in Windows 8, there is every reason to believe you'll get them in Windows 7 as well.


Downgrading the OS will not likely help you here.


Run chkdsk /r


Run HDD diags - SeaTools for DOS, LONG test -
