  1. USB Installer UEFI or Not?


    Hey guys, I'm not so organized due to my health. I have multiple Windows 10 Installers, Linux etc, and usually choose to download the iso and create my own USB Installers, and usually label them appropriately. I have this one that I'm not sure if it was installed as UEFI, is there a way to tell without going through reinstalling it to the USB again?

    Don't know if you can tell by looking at the contents but here they are:

    05/22/2018 02:24 PM <DIR> boot
    05/22/2018 02:24 PM <DIR> efi
    05/22/2018 02:24 PM <DIR> sources
    05/22/2018 02:36 PM <DIR> support
    05/22/2018 02:36 PM 128 autorun.inf
    05/22/2018 02:36 PM 407,582 bootmgr
    05/22/2018 02:36 PM 1,257,376 bootmgr.efi
    05/22/2018 02:36 PM 80,648 setup.exe
    4 File(s) 1,745,734 bytes
    4 Dir(s) 12,275,924,992 bytes free

    Thanks, FM

  2. Install Windows 10 using UEFI bootable USB thumb drive

    You need to go into you system bios and select allow uefi usb drive. Then add the UEFI usb drive to the boot menu

    better way to partition aand create an bootable usb.

    For the UEFI system, we can use these steps to create the bootable USB:

    1.Locate a 4GB or larger USB flash drive

    2.Open Diskpart and run the following command cmd admin type diskpart

    • Type DiskPart in the command prompt.
    • Type "List Disk” (make note of the disk number of the target USB drive).
    • Type "Select Disk X”, where X is the target USB drive noted in step 4.
    • Type "Clean”.
    • Type "Create Partition Primary”.
    • Type "format FS=fat32 quick”.
    • Type "Active”.
    • Type "Assign".
    • Type "Exit".

    Copy your ISO files to the drive and reboot

    never use UEFI it better to repartition and remove UEFI go with legacy bois

  3. Failing to install Server 2012 R2 via UEFI

    No extra steps? Just copy everything from DVD to USB thumb drive? Seems a bit redundant but I'm working on it...

    Edit: Scratch that. My USB drive is 4 GB and the ISO contents is about 4.1 GB. Am I going to need to buy a larger stick?

    What "Windows 7 tool?"

    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
