All users I've seen steering away from UEFI is because they have pirated copies of windows 7 whose crack dont work on UEFI boot partitions.

I had not heard that, OldMX. Installation and repairs are complicated since you cannot simply boot the installation and repair disk to do repairs normally: UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums

I see nothing in the User's Manual that indicates this is a UEFI BIOS: http://shop.lenovo.com/products/us/l...tasheet_US.pdf

To be certain you can research the exact mobo model to find it's specs. Belarc Advisor can sometimes correctly identify the mobo model.
