    How to install drivers by UEFI


    Hello.
    I have a problem. I got Medion Akoya P5342 G PC with AMI motherboard.
    I installed my Windows 8 in+ UEFI and I try to install all drivers from second disc also by UEFI.
    When I try to boot cd with drivers after moment I see the screen with instalation of first program (CyberLink Power Recovery) and I have to choose language and then I push next and I get error "There is no factory image.Please contat customer service". What I have to do to install all drivers by UEFI? I can install them in normal mode on running PC but I wanna do it like they do in shop.
    Second problem is with instalation Windows. I make 2 partition of my HDD and later in "my computer" I see only one.
    Help me please, give me some advices.
    Thank You!

    Well if you installed in UEFI you would have 3 partitions!! The drivers don't care if your UEFI or MBR most will work either way. What you may need to do is to go to the manufacture web site and download the latest windows 8.1 drivers. Your hard drive should be showing Basic GPT if so you will have at least 3 partitions a 300mb a 100MB Your C:\ partition

    You can right click the drive in Disk management,the left column and look in the properties tab Volume tab should show Partition Style GUID Partition Table (GPT)

    I solved the problem with invisible partition. I go to manage and I named and formated that invisible partition and now everything is ok. But I still don't know what to do with those drivers.
    On Cd with drivers I found a lot of folders and files :
    folders:
    boot
    Drivers
    EFI
    sources
    Tools
    files:
    bootmgr.efi

    Should I install the drivers on HDD with MBR and then switch HDD to GPT and install windows?

    If that is the manufacturer supplied custom Windows install disk (that's what it looks like to me) the drivers in that Drivers folder were likely installed during the Windows setup. Why install them twice?

    This appears to be a boot disk to install windows with. On booting this disk you will have to hit a key Esc, F8 F2 what ever key brings up a boot menu on your computer. You would then select from the list of boot devices UEFI DVD to install windows UEFI GPT, Select DVD to install Legacy BIOS/MBR. Any other driver you have should be installed inside of window after windows is running. The list you have posted or boot files to install with
