Boot UEFI from wake on lan, or convert UEFI MBR to legacy.
Currently having a wake on lan issue with a certain computer.
The machine is setup correctly but the windows boot information is stored in a 100mb UEFI partition, and when the computer wakes on lan, it will not boot windows, just sit at a blank screen.
When it wakes on lan it is trying to boot from the legacy device (same blank screen happens if you choose to boot from it from bios)
ive tried updating the bios but no luck, all settings seem to be as they should be.
Is there some trick to get it to load the UEFI MBR, or is there a safe way other then reformatting the machine to move the MBR over to the legacy device itself?
Thanks for any help.

Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,
Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk: remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.
Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed here.
At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:
SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.
In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.
