    uefi installation of windows 8


    ok... i upgraded from win7 to win8... and now i got to know that win8 would boot even more faster if it has uefi configuration,but to my bad it wasn't enabled in my intel dh55pj motherboard bios... now how do i install windows 8 again with uefi config. ?? i really have no idea about the installation in this mode

    EDIT: after upgrading to win8 i had to refresh my pc ,since live tiles weren't working and i didn't know how to solve the problem, after refreshing i ran intel driver update utility and installed latest chipset software and updated the wddm 1.1(intel HD graphics) to intel HD graphics from the device manager

    From a quick look at the intel dh55pj on the Intel web site, the board is to old to have UEFI/BIOS firmware.
