CSM would need to be ENABLED, & set to UEFI or Legacy.

CSM is used for compatability with older ROMs but if your want to boot using UEFI then you disable it. In other words, CSM Enabled means legacy CSM disabled means UEFI.

I Think I Figured It Out

Hi Guys
I think I figured out the issue of Booting Win 7 using UEFI and GPT. I was preparing to convert my GPT drive back to MBR. I went to Admin Tools and began trying to delete the partitions and such. It allowed me to delete drive D, my Data drive but would not let me delete the others. OK no problem boot the windows dvd and do the rest from there.

When I prepared to boot I noticed something odd on my boot menu, options to boot the cd both CSM and UEFI. Just to see what would happen I picked the UEFI option expecting that it would hang. It DIDN'T. Setup started and I was allowed to select a partition to install Win 7. No warnings about it being GPT. When I selected drive C it said that the partitions were in the wrong order. I deleted them and allowed Windows to recreate them. The install is currently running but is looking good.

Long story short, I think the answer to running Win 7 in UEFI mode is that there has to be unallocated space on the target drive. This is the only thing that was different this time. I know it doesn't make sense but it appears to work. I will keep everyone posted.

Which is why I told you 17 hours ago:

It Worked

The install has completed. It appears to have worked quite well. I am now running Win7 Professional with GPT on my laptop. So cool. Now have to install drivers but it's cool. So the short answer to booting Win 7 using UEFI and using GPT is that there has to be unallocated space on the drive .

Next time follow the steps given instead of acting snotty. You'd have had it installed yesterday.

But that doesn't make sense? Sorry I don't understand. You see, the initialization of Windows setup does not have any relation to how your HD is partitioned!

- You put the DVD in your DVD drive
- Restart the computer and boot into UEFI mode
- You get the message "Windows is loading files...." with the black background and white progress bar on the bottom - which happens to be copying the WIM file in RAM
- The moment that disappears, the animated Windows logo appears on screen for about 3 seconds and while the logo animates itself, literally, the logo animation freezes and game over. You can't even enter setup

How is that related to how your HD is partitioned? It does not make any sense. It's totally unrelated.

I didn't follow your directions cause you didn't address my question and you're the one who started with the smart mouth attitude

Shane, I am sorry if that's the way you saw it and I apologize as I did not mean it like that, all I did is try to help you by providing you with the instructions that worked for me.

As far as other posters have suggested "diskpart" or whatever, I refuse to follow those instructions because I know better and I am saying those instructions are illogical to my siutiation. I even took the HD out and put a fresh new one and I had the same problem. Windows 7 setup will not load in UEFI mode.

Either way, I found a way to enable legacy BIOS mode and this avoids all the issues I had.
