    Hi everyone, I'm currently having issues with getting Windows 7 to work without CSM on my HP Envy x360 15m-ds0011dx AMD Ryzen laptop. I had successfully installed Windows 7 on the laptop with CSM enabled, then I had tried a method by Youtuber Bob Pony that had worked on all my other Intel computers, but once I had restarted the HP Envy laptop, it hung at the Starting Windows boot screen, but the logo kept on animating rather then freezing all together, and the Windows 7 logon sound played while still stuck on the Starting Windows screen. I also had the same problem with my Ryzen custom built desktop, but it didn't play the startup sound. I just don't know what to do with how to getting Windows 7 to boot without CSM on my HP Envy. Coincidentally, they both have an AMI BIOS, but I thought that had nothing to do with why it doesn't work. I can't do this by myself, but I really want to use the laptop with Windows 7 without CSM. Please help.
