Is my PC UEFI Compatible and how to install Windows 8 UEFI

    So you have deleted all partitions and after that made 4 new not 2? How? Does the Install program asked you if you want to select either BIOS or UEFI? Searching on Google but not finding what I want.

How you have installed your Windows 8 with UEFI?

    Already tried this and now watching videos about the HP Bios settings. But it will install it with Legacy BIOS and I should be able to boot from UEFI, I will go deeper in the settings and search for UEFI Boot order. Hope I find it. I watched a video with HP 2000 which supports it and mine is g6 so it should definitely support it.

    Is the Windows 7 install, in UEFI mode?
    If NO
    Reset the UEFI/BIOS firmware to UEFI.
