I cant get past the asus screen at the start. I can access the bios but even with a bootable usb stick it won't open the usb key despite the priority. It just goes on a loop and constantly goes to the ASUS starting screen.

When writing your question, please be as descriptive as possible.

AMD FX (tm) quad core
8gb ram (DDR3 1333MHz)
It came with Windows 7 but it evetually updated to 10
The usb was supposed to boot an iso of the windows 7 disc but since it wont even get past the ASUS logo the only thing I can access is UEFI BIOS Utility - EZ Mode

Using a usb key (Kingston) to act as the cd for windows 7 recovery but that doesn't matter because it never reaches Windows Boot Manager or the USB Key itself

What I mean is from where please is the windows 7 installation media - which has now been transferred to the usb

and how was it made as an ISO copied to a usb stick is not bootable

Well the choice is yours but neither I or indeed anyone else can help if you do not wish to answer any of the questions asked

cant get past the asus screen at the start. I can access the bios but even with a bootable usb stick it won't open the usb key despite the priority. It just goes on a loop and constantly goes to the ASUS starting screen
as I have said - it will not boot to usb if the usb is not bootable and a windows iso for 7 copied to a usb is NOT bootable
The USB install has to be made a certain way for it to be bootable.
There are two methods one for a UEFI system and one for a MBR system

Additionally to that the windows 7 installation ISO files that were previously available from many sources, but required a product key were withdrawn from all legitimate sources by Microsoft

They Microsoft replaced the third party downloads many of which were from DigitalRiver an authorised distributor of Microsoft software with their own windows 7 download install media
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows7
However that requires as you can see a product key and OEM keys are not accepted. The reason being that Microsoft, as always, state that OEM installations of windows are the responsibility of the OEM - Original Equipment Manufacturer.

I suspect the cause is the loop caused by a failure of a process be that whatever was being done when the problem occurred

However with respect I cannot work with someone who keeps telling me that my questions are pointless and refuses to answer them.
