◆ Install USB memory creation
This time install "Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)" as OS.

Since the completed self-made PC does not have an optical drive, it will be installed using the USB memory, but since the installation speed itself is overwhelmingly faster than the optical drive, even if there is an optical drive, Windows is installed with USB memory The meaning is much ant, so there is no loss by knowing the way. If you are installing from the installation DVD with optical drive, please leave it to "◆ UEFI setting" below and it is OK.

◆ Setting up UEFI
When you turn on the power of your homebrew PC created without OS installed,UEFIWill start. TraditionalBIOSUnlike the screen UEFI of the graphical UI can be operated not only with the keyboard but also with the mouse.

First, click "Advanced Mode" in the lower right.

Click the "Main" tab → "Language" → "Japanese" to make UEFI Japanese.

By default, H97I-PLUS 'UEFI does not need to change settings especially for installing Windows 7 because optical drive and USB memory are already registered on the boot destination media. So, I'll carefully check what settings are possible. If you say "I want to install Windows 7 as soon as possible!", Let's go to "Install Windows 7".

Opening the "Ai Tweaker" tab opens the CPU setting screen. On this screenOverclocking (OC)You can set such as.

When you turn on the PC by pushing the power button of the PC, it starts up from Windows installation media.

After confirming that the language and keyboard settings are correct, click "Next".

Click "Install now".

I will wait for a while.

Check "I agree" and click "Next".

Click "New installation".

It is possible to switch off the partition and change the installation destination from "Drive option". Since this time installing it as one system drive (C drive) without partitioning to SSD, click "Next".

◆ Installing the driver
I finished installing Windows 7 but in this state I can not use PC properly. This is an image that opened the device manager. A "!" Icon is attached to an uninstalled driver. By installing all of these drivers all functions of PC can be used.

That's why the driver installation work. There is also a method of "downloading the latest driver from the Internet", but as the ASUS motherboard comes with a driver DVD that automatically installs all necessary drivers, install it using this It's very easy to recommend. If there is an optical drive in the PC, you can boot it by launching the driver DVD. Since there is no optical drive this time, I will copy all the contents of the DVD media all the time to the USB memory.

Insert the USB memory in your PC, execute "Setup.exe" in the copied file.

Click "ASUS InstAll" on "Driver" tab.

Click "OK".

After that, install the driver automatically, it restarts accordingly as necessary, just waiting for OK.

When the driver installation is completed, click "OK" and restart the PC.

After rebooting, confirm that all the "!" Attached to the driver of the device manager have disappeared, finally completed the original PC! ...... I'd like to say, but I still have work.

◆ Final work
· Windows Update
The first of the remaining work is "Windows Update". By the way, the number of Windows Update is about 200 in all.

It took me more than an hour to wait for the installation to be completed and set it to the "latest state". How much time it takes Windows Update to be longer than Windows 7 installation work time.

· Activation
The second task is license activation. Click "Windows Activation" link under "Control Panel" → "System and Security" → "System".

Click "I'm going to activate Windows online now".

Wait a while ......

If the authentication is successful, it is OK. Finally completed my personal computer.
