  1. Most Drives disappear when disselecting "Legacy + UEFI". Do i need to reinstall windows?


    Hello, so i have a new AMD RX 6700 XT and i did the BIOS update so i could use SAM. However, when i tried to launch my PC then, Windows would not start, because the boot order was consisting of drives and options that dont reflect my setup. When I activated CMS, inserted a USB stick and also selected "Legacy + UEFI", i could again choose my beloved M2 as my boot drive. How can i change my bootdrive so it will be UEFI? do i need to reinstall Windows?

    :)

  2. Trouble installing windows 7 on RAID in UEFI

    As the title says, I'm trying to install Windows on a RAID array in uefi on my Maximus V Formula. When using legacy ROM I can install just fine but I go into CSM and change settings to UEFI only, I can build the array in the UEFI Raid driver (IRST tab in "BIOS") but the array does not show up in the boot menu and when I try to install windows (boot from UEFI DVD drive), The drive does not show up in the Windows install. The next thing I tried was to enable UEFI and legacy oprom in CSM, boot from UEFI DVD drive and install to the RAID array (probably detected by legacy oprom) and it will install. After first reboot, Windows Boot manager will show up as an option in the BIOS boot menu so I set that as first boot device and reboot. I will get to the starting windows screen and then BSOD (too quick to get codes) The last thing I tried was Changing to legacy mode and installing windows to a different drive. once installed, I initialized the Raid array as GPT and rebooted, changed csm back to UEFI only but they RAID array still doesn't show in the boot device list so I repeated the earlier process hoping that It might work because I had initialized as GPT but it still BSODs on starting windows screen. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Trouble installing windows 7 on RAID in UEFI

    I think you were on track with your first try. Windows installer probably needs the RAID driver in order to detect it on install.

    Legacy to UEFI

    I'm debating moving to UEFI form my now legacy BIOS (Award Software Int.) the mother board is a GA-Z68XP-UD3 rev1.0 on the the following link it shows a UEFI BIOS U1J )UEFI BIOS)

    https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z68XP-UD3-rev-10#support-dl-bios

    Currently I'm running the legacy F10 BIOS. Does installing the UEFI BIOS automatically take care of everything to get to the UEFI BIOS? Installing the UEFI BIOS following the instructions using the Q-flash method GIGABYTE How to Reflash Motherboard BIOS

    What's steps do I take and in what order?

    Much appreciated
