How large is the .iso file you are using, and where did you get it from?

as of now i installed Windows 7 x64 on my laptop using the legacy type bios via the windows dvd. If i burn a windows 8 x64 and install it using the legacy type bios as well, can i change the bios to uefi type after finishing the windows 8 install?

Thanks for your time sorry i am a newb as i only encountered this uefi bios now

How large is the .iso file you are using, and where did you get it from?
a friend gave it to me it came from a windows 8 pro legit installation dvd. I think it is somewhat of 5gb +

Sorry, but no. If you want to use UEFI, then both Windows 7 and 8 would have to be clean installed with UEFI instead.

Did you purchase a Windows 8 product key?

If so, then I would recommend downloading a new copy of the ISO file since a 64-bit Windows 8 Pro upgrade ISO should only be 2.9 GB if it came from Microsoft online.

http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/18309-windows-8-upgrade-iso-download-create.html

yes i did. i thought i could just borrow my friend's copy since i have a slow internet connection. i guess i have no choice.

Thanks for your time :)

You're welcome.

You can download a 64-bit ISO from any 64-bit computer though. :)

I can't get the USB to boot :( When I boot the USB drive it just says that windows failed to start. It mentions the file \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD and the status 0xc000000d and info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. The USB will boot when UEFI is disabled and changed to Legacy BIOS but it will not let me install. Also in step 11 it mentions the file "sources\install.wim\1\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.egi". However I cannot find any file as such - just bootmgfw.efi not .eg​i Is this a typo or not??

I had similar problem. I solved it by using the Upgrade Assistant or whatever it's called. It created automatically a windows 8 image on my usb stick and it happened to be UEFI as well. My uefi bios recognized it without a problem and i didn't do anything, i just pointed which usb flash drive to use :)
It's probably the windows image that you're using. Try a legit untouched copy, those on torrent sites aren't untouched or use the Upgrade Assistant like i did.

I'm using an untouched version as far as I know (it is the legal ISO from digitalriver) and I'm trying to install windows 7 not 8.

Hello jamerst, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Yes, it's bootmgfw.efi and not egi. :)

Double check to make sure that you do not have "secure boot" and "fast boot" enabled in your UEFI settings.

I'm just going to bypass the UEFI installation completely, found a post on how to do it. I'm not that bothered about having UEFI and it's just being too much trouble so thanks anyway.

Are you using a USB 3.0 port?

Hi everyone,

(And sorry for bad english)

I've got exactly the same trouble : error 0xc000000d (BCD) when i try to install Windows 7 Pro x64 with USB Flash in UEFI mode on ASUS UX31A (with Windows 8 Pro)

I have carefully follow the tutorial and all i have found on the net : disable secure boot, CMS, enable USB Legacy ...

I have only USB3 Ports (my Flash drive is USB2) but i have turn on USB legacy in "Bios".

I have tried to change the Letter in BCD with Visual BCD Editor but nothing, always the same error.

Perhaps the only way is to buy an External DVD for installation ?

Best regards,

Kiss.

I don't care of UEFI.

I read the tuto but im not sure its possible to turn on "Legacy Bios"

In the bios, it's possible to delete the boot option : Windows Boot Manager , but perhaps its risky ^^ ?

Or Add New boot option : i can choose a path for boot option.

Legacy BIOS should be in there somewhere. You have to switch the mode from UEFI in the same selection thing (as in not a separate option if you know what I mean) Mine looks like this and you simply press F6 to toggle the mode. JK6w1ph.jpg
