I don't really need the installable version. I do have a free portable that pre-dates the malware inclusion. The dev has developed a rep for the malware. I wouldn't think that the paid portable...

You can try using DBAN (http://www.dban.org/). It's free for personal use. Just boot from the CD (and make sure you're nuking the right drive). If that doesn't work, or you want to go further, take...

Nope. Just Disabled, UEFI only, Legacy Only, Legacy First and UEFI First. Maybe you are referring to the boot override option? It shows whatever disks I have, including any usb sticks, additional...

Hi Greg. Yes, it is mbr. This bios only provides the CSM option if you set the bios option "Windows 8 Features" to Windows 8 or Win 8 WHQL. Since I'm running win 7, I have that option set to 'Other...
