  1. Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 questions on EFI and GPT


    I installed Windows 10 (20H2) on a 2TB HDD (MBR) in a PC with a GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Motherboard.
    Works fine until I add a GPT HDD then the system will not boot.
    If I add GPT HDDs once Windows is running there is no problem. However that is hardly ideal.
    Is there any way round this problem?

    Anyone know of an EFI upgrade for this board?

    :)

    Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3

    Supporting Intel Core Generation 2 processors, the Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 not only sports a new color scheme, it also attempts to match the sleek new look with serious performance. Built for some serious overclocking, the P67A-UD4-B3 comes ready to reach the finish line first; will it win the race?

    Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 questions on EFI and GPT

    asus p8p67 evo or gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3

    Z68 has the Intel Quick Cache SSD cache thingie, and allows you to use the Intel GPU for transcoding and such, if the board comes with a Lucid Virtu liscence.


    My P8P67 Pro review:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/P8P67 PRO/

    SCORE: 9.3.

    My P67A-UD4-B3 review:

    Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Review

    SCORE: 8.5

    ASUS is doing better. P8P67 EVO offers more than the PRO that I reviewed, which, to me, makes the choice obvious. Forget Gigabyte. Give 'em a year or so to get some better products, then they might be a worthy contender.


    Too bad other reviewers don't cover as much as I do, makes it hard to see why the EVO board is good.


    ALSO:

    FYI, I am using the Gigabyte board right this second. I do not like it, it's BIOS, or the clocking it offers. Unfortunately it's the best board I have on-hand right now.
