Problems installing 2nd operating system

Operating system: Bunsenlabs Hydrogen 64 bit
Computer: Motherboard: Asus Prime B250 Plus
CPU: Intel i3 7100

I left a space on my hard drive (first partition) to install windows 7, 64 bit
When I try to install it freezes where it says: "loading windows".
When I boot up I get a message about pressing F2 to load UEFI bios settings, so am assuming it is using this, although couldn't find anything in the bios settings related. I read some things about UEFI on the NET. I'm not sure what to do with this, or if this is another problem.

Thanks for help,

Joe

That's an old release and we have had several critcal security fixes issued since then, please update your system as a matter of urgency:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

Also, you have very new hardware for our venerable kernel so you should probably follow this guide:

Perhaps the installation medium is corrupted, does it work on other machines?

Re: Problems installing 2nd operating system

I use 'sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade'
Is this the same as: 'sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade'?

I followed the guide and installed the packages from backports.
Is the processor I have based on skylake?
I was looking at this statement:

sudo apt-get install --target-release jessie-backports linux-image-amd64 xserver-xorg-video-intel libegl1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri

This will generate a new GRUB menu entry for the backported kernel, the old kernel can still be selected from GRUB in case there are any problems.

How do I access the boot entries?

I haven't noticed really a difference on the video. Do you know how the sound works with this processor? The sound is not that good, but it could just be the ear buds that I have.

I used the disc I have on an older computer which isn't working anymore. I just tried it on this computer.

Yes, pretty much, you should now be using v8.9

Is the processor I have based on skylake?

I think it's KabyLake, which is a little bit newer again.

How do I access the boot entries?

They are in the "Advanced Options" boot sub-menu wink

Do you know how the sound works with this processor?

If you have followed the guide then the audio should be supported as well.

Having said that, our next release should offer better support without the need for tweaking.

Hmmm, does it still load on that old computer work on other computers?

Re: Problems installing 2nd operating system

Try disabling uefi if it's possible. Disable secure boot

Re: Problems installing 2nd operating system

I disabled secure boot, but not sure how to disable uefi. From looking at my bios I think it uses both. I tried contacting Asus to see if they could help, but not much help so far.
