    Hello excudemebruh, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Looking at the specs for your Gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud3 rev 4.0 motherboard below, it supports UEFI.

    Since this is a Gigabyte board, is it the same in the screenshot I posted at the link below?

    yeah i saw that picture before but for some reason (maybe because I'm running windows 7) i do not seem to have "Secure Boot state" option. Here are some screenshot so you can understand what I mean:

    lol actually never mind i somehow was able to get the installation to work

    I just tried setting the legacy usb as first in the boot order(which oddly enough i was positive i tried multiple times yesterday) and not the uefi usb option and it worked !

    fyi the legacy option is the usb drive without uefi in front of it

    thanks for the reply and i hope u have a great day.
