Fix for recent windows 7 problem

Further to Rep’s contribution simplifying the information concerning the Windows 7 ‘red screen’ issue, I would add the following:

(a) Not all Asus motherboards are affected by this problem, only those with a UEFI BIOS, which Asus only began to introduce in late 2011.  So older computers are not affected.

(b) Although the steps shown on the Asus support page are fairly simply, users without a great deal of technical knowledge should seek help from a more knowledgeable friend rather than trying to apply the fix themselves.  If you mess up the boot settings, you will only cause yourself more problems.
