    My Inspire has M2 drive, 16 GB RAM and attached DVD drive that uses two rear USB ports. It lights up upon boot but and spins up with lights on but does not read the disk to run the start Install procedures.
    Is this feature available for Win 7 or only Win8 and Win 10?
    Also is the serial port activated in the “BIOS” by default? I don’t see as settings that allow turning on the COM port or setting it’s com number.
    All I want to do is turn on COM 1 with the usual paramaters.

    Thanks

    Hello William,

    Welcome to the Azulle forums. You should be able to install any UEFI/GPT compatible OS. Make sure that use a UEFI 64 bits version of Windows 7.

    Also the RS232 port comes activated by default, you don’t have to change the BIOS to use it.

    Do not hesitate to contact us directly if you need further assistance.

    Best regards

    So now I purchased a USB DVD player and made the changes to the BIOS to allow it to boot from the Win 7 installation DVD. However after starting to read the disk it goes through the “Loading Windows”
    notice and the progress bar completes it’s run across the screen and the Windows color Logo comes up for about 8 seconds and then the computer locks up . Allowed to set for a while and still no further progress
    and AI have to hold in the power button to get the unit to shut down. No keyboard functions at all.
    I installed an m2 SSD drive and a single stick of 16 GB memory. Is there a need to use a particular memory slot if only one bank of memory is used?
    What have I missed? Drive, memory, and BIOS changes… What else is needed to get this to load?

    Hello William,

    You are doing it right, you don’t have to change anything on the BIOS, except for the option to boot from the USB DVD first. At this point a good idea is to try a different approach:
