The thing is that the options for boot mode (Legacy/UEFI) from boot Menu have disappeared. It's no longer there.

Not sure then, it`ll show up as either or for me when I use the program I linked you earlier.

Has to be a bios thing

You have created a uefi installer, you are using a gpt disk, and you have chosen uefi in the bios, correct ?

I dont have a UEFI option or any other option in my boot menu as i said before, even legacy or CSM isnt there; I have no idea why.

Anyways, I formatted it as MBR, and everything works perfectly. So, considering what you said that using UEFI doesnt really matter much: Thanks
