    Welcome to EightForums.

    Is this a uEFI/BIOS firmware install or a BIOS install?

    Thanks .

    In fact it was my fault that I didn't catch the [very quick] instruction to "press any key" that the first boot will be from CD or DVD , so the computer go to the current windows and I couldn't instal another one in another partition.
