    Please post back with a screenshot showing all of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window, along with what drive or partition you wanted to install Windows 8 on.

    In addition, I'll need to know the full system specs of the PC you are trying to do this on.

    • You CANNOT make a sector-by-sector copy of GPT disks. The Disk and Partition GUIDs will no longer be unique. This must never happen. You can make a sector-by-sector copy of the contents of ESP or basic data partitions.



    Is it possible to use DriveImage XML to image this kind of disk after installation or will I need some other kind of imaging program? Free would be best unless I need to spend some money. Or can't I use any imaging programs at all?

    Hello Marty,

    I haven't used DriveImage XML, but the free AOMEI Backupper Standard or Macrium Reflect Free would be good choices to create a system image with.

    I recommend you make a Windows System Image.
    System Image - Create in Windows 8

    or
    Look for a 3rd party ,Backup software, which fully supports Windows 8/8.1, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot.
    Which is signed by Microsoft.Also using WinRE5.

    Paragon 14 paid for.

    Is it mandatory that Secure Boot be enabled in the UEFI? I didn't see it as really necessary at the time I looked at the info on Secure Boot, though I could have missed something....

    It's not mandatory, but is recommended for better security. Plus, you have a watermark display on your desktop if it's not enabled.

    Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

    UEFI installation from DVD


    Some of these questions may be a little nave so forgive my ignorance.
    Some may well have been addressed elsewhere but I have put them all together here.

    I am buying a custom built PC with no operating system.
    I don't want an OEM operating system so I propose to install Windows 8.1 Pro myself.
    I have already bought a Windows 8.1 Pro DVD.

    Can I do a UEFI install directly from the DVD without making a bootable USB flashdrive? How would I know that the DVD has UEFI support?
    The PC has SSD + 3 HDDs. Should I disconnect the HDDs before installing windows?
    I have read that graphics cards (GeForce GTX 750ti installed) can cause issues with UEFI installs - do I need to disconnect it first?
    What drivers do I need to install after the Windows 8.1 installation is completed?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    Windows 8/8.1 original DVD (edit: only 64-bit DVD) has UEFI support, so you don't need worry about that.

    Yes.

    "4. Press whatever key (ex: F11) it shows to boot to your motherboard's boot menu, and select to boot from the listed UEFI DVD or UEFI USB."

    Here is more info: Windows 7/8 setup: Installing using Legacy BIOS Boot Mode or UEFI Boot Mode.
