    I have Windows 8.1 as the default OS on my laptop

    the question is, to install Windows 7, I have to enable CMS

    when I do that, I see an option below it that says:

    Launch PXE OpROM

    it is disabled by default

    is it recommended to enable it or keep it disabled?

    This is a BIOS question and has nothing with Windows 7 to do?

    knew you wouldn't have anything useful to say when I saw you were the last one to post a comment in my thread

    on a side note, it is about installing Windows 7 so....

    Google??

    =)(= is absolutely right... this is nothing to do with Windows 7. It means it enables PXE OPROM (network booting) in CSM (compatibility mode) (which isn't needed for local installation).
